Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Citation
Case Number: 
2012 IL App (2d) 110686
Decision Date: 
September 20, 2012
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Lee Co.
Justice: 
JORGENSEN
Holding: 
Appeal dismissed.
Plaintiff never caused clerk to file appellate record, but instead himself filed copies of a selection of documents in case. Absence of certified record is fatal to appeal, as appellate court cannot decide whether it has jurisdiction. (HUTCHINSON and SCHOSTOK, concurring.)
