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.
