New Civil Opinion Coming From the Illinois Supreme Court


The Illinois Supreme Court has announced that on the morning of Thursday, April 19, it will file an opinion in one civil case [pdf]:

  • Santiago v. E. W. Bliss Co., No. 111792 – When an injured plaintiff intentionally files a complaint using a fictitious name, without leave of court as provided in 735 ILCS 5/2-401, and subsequent to the expiration of the statute of limitations, files an amended complaint with the correct plaintiff’s name, should the court dismiss with prejudice as a sanction, or because the limitations period has expired and the amended complaint does not relate back to the original filing? See Civil Procedure.
