Judgment

Pastry Partners, Inc. v. Greenswag

Posted on Updated on

In this unpublished opinion, the First District affirmed the grant of summary judgment for the defendants on statute of limitations grounds.   The court held that the plaintiff knew of its injury before an adverse judgment was entered against it and that the statute began to run before the judgment was entered.   The court also rejected the plaintiff’s arguments based upon equitable tolling, equitable estoppel and judicial estoppel.

Recent Illinois Case: Navar v. Tribler, Orpett and Meyer, P.C.

Posted on Updated on

In this unpublished opinion, the Appellate Court affirmed the dismissal of three claims against lawyers. A breach of contract claim was properly dismissed because the plaintiff failed to identify a specific contract term that was breached. The malpractice claim was properly dismissed because the complained of acts involved judgment and not malpractice. The fraud claim was properly dismissed because predictions of future events do not constitute fraud. The Appellate Court also affirmed the trial court’s refusal to allow a further amendment.
