Robinson v. Point One Toyota, Evanston

Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
2011 IL App (1st) 111889
Decision Date: 
December 28, 2012
1st Dist.
Cook Co.,1st Div.
Affirmed in part and reversed in part and vacated in part; remanded.
(Court opinion corrected 1/9/13.) Both Defendants filed their notices of cross-appeals, which indicates that both Plaintiffs and Defendants considered order entered one month prior to be a final judgment. As Defendants' "active participation" in proceedings was limited to its own motion before the court, the reinvestment rule does not apply, and thus court lacked jurisdiction to correct its judicial error as to attorney fees and costs. Inclusion of language attempting to explain default calculation method is not contrary to disclosure requirement of CLA. (LAMPKIN and REYES, concurring.)
