CIVIL

Downtown Disposal Services, Inc., v. The City of Chicago

By Karen Kies DeGrand, Donohue Brown Mathewson & Smyth LLC

A corporation must be represented by counsel in legal proceedings. In a four to three split opinion, with Justice Burke writing for the majority,  the Illinois Supreme Court ruled that a corporation's complaint, filed by its lay president rather than by an attorney, was not automatically a nullity. Rather, circuit courts should consider the circumstances of the case to determine whether the filing defect requires dismissal or may be cured.
