Take this excerpt from the February issue of the ISBA’s Civil Practice & Procedure newsletter, for example:
The court cited Casciola v. Gardner, 101 Ill.App.3d 852, 428 N.E.2d 921 (1st Dist. 1981) and Needy v. Sparks, 74 Ill.App.3d 914, 918, 393 N.E.2d 1252 (1979), in its discussion regarding a judgment creditor’s conduct that would excuse a defendant from payment of interest.
This single sentence now contains four links to Fastcase to help you instantly find the case you’d like to read.
Thousands of ISBA articles, all with convenient links to Fastcase. And ALL of this is free to ISBA members.
