Shatku v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
2013 IL App (2d) 120412
Decision Date: 
May 10, 2013
2d Dist.
Kane Co.
Appeal dismissed.
Court denied Plaintiff's motion to reconsider dismissal of her "Motion to Refile" her negligence action against Defendant. Motion to reconsider was untimely as it was filed more than 30 days after dismissal, and thus motion and notice of appeal were late. Faxing motion to Clerk's Office on 30th day is insufficient, as no indication that Clerk's Office accepted documents for filing via fax, and no Supreme Court Rule allows it. Jurisdiction did not revest in trial court as a result of parties' addressing Plaintiff's motion on the merits. (BURKE and ZENOFF, concurring.)
