Case Law Update: Pleadings in Illinois

Cable America, Inc. v. Pace Electronics, Inc., No. 1-08-3073 (11-16-09) found that a court was within its discretion to dismiss with prejudice Plaintiff’s fifth amended complaint, where court had given Plaintiff numerous warnings of pleading deficiencies, yet still non-compliance with requirement of 735 ILCS 5/2-603 for plain and concise statement of cause of action by inclusion of multiple causes of action, and by not specifying whether claiming breach of oral or written contract. This case will impact Illinois law.
