The Second District Appellate Court affirmed the Circuit Court of McHenry County’s decision to not apply the five-year statute of limitations for fraudulent concealment when (1) Plaintiff’s concealment claim was identical to his legal malpractice claim; and (2) Plaintiff had a “reasonable time” to file his legal malpractice claim within the normal two-year limitations period.  Harold Crowe v. Randall Taradash & The Taradash Law Offices, 2021 IL App (2d) 200316-U.  The court reasoned that this case was analogous to Barratt v. Goldberg, 296 Ill. App. 3d 252, 258 (1998), and further held that three months and one day was “more than a reasonable time” for Plaintiff to file his claim. Id. at ¶ 30.
