Recent Illinois Case: Rodi v. Horstman

Posted on Updated on

This case involves alleged malpractice within malpractice, i.e., a lawyer retained to prosecute a complaint against a lawyer was himself accused of malpractice. The court held that, because the first case was barred by the statute of limitations, the second lawyer’s failure to file a timely notice of appeal from its dismissal did not cause any loss.
