This is a county circuit court ruling, not the IL Supreme Court. Cook County can overrule the CA7?
It's not overruling the 7th Circuit because it is not a superior court to the 7th. It's sorta' like the county circuit court is in a different chain of command than the 7th Circuit. Both chains eventually merge and answer to the U.S. Supreme Court. This is not a perfect analogy because, as I mentioned before, the federal courts can enjoin enforcement of the laws and enforce it through contempt proceedings.
