The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and Chief Judge Timothy Evans have reached an agreement to close the branch courthouses at Belmont and Western and at 51st Street by September.  Both branch courthouses have two courtrooms apiece, one that handles felony preliminary hearings and one that handles misdemeanors.  The cases will be moved to other courthouses.
