On February 7, 2006, the federal judge in the case of Shakman v. City of Chicago signed a court order authorizing the Office of Inspector General to follow hiring procedures that make the Office independent from the rest of City government.
These procedures apply only to the Office of Inspector General, which hires positions directly - not through the Department of Human Resources.
