Well, the Madison County Courthouse finally has drawn enough attention that it deserves it's own newspaper: The Madison County Record.
Madison County, Illinois has more class action lawsuit filings than any other county in America, having set a national record in 2003 with 106 class action filings. That's up from 77 class action filings in 2002, compared to only two filings in 1998. It is important to note that these cases have very little, if any, connection to Madison County.
