        Creates  the  Prosecutorial  Misconduct  Act.   Provides  that  a      
   prosecutor who commits prosecutorial misconduct (official  misconduct)      
   is  not  immune  from  civil  liability  for  his  or  her misconduct.      
   Provides that if the court is aware of prosecutorial  misconduct,  the      
   court  must  order the clerk of the court to transmit evidence of that      
   misconduct to the Attorney Registration and  Disciplinary  Commission.

   Local Governmental and Governmental Employees  Tort  Immunity  Act  to
