October 30, 2012
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co., 2d Div.
Justice: 
MURPHY
Holding: 
Affirmed.
An order is not void, but voidable, where judgment is erroneous and court has not been divested of jurisdiction. Leave of court must be sought prior to filing appearance after 30 days. Court was within its discretion in finding that Defendant did not properly file or serve his additional appearance and that Plaintiff properly sent notice of its motion directly to Defendant who was of record as appearing pro se. (QUINN and CONNORS, concurring.)
