Case Law Update: Evidence in Conflicts of Law

Gleim v. Roberts, No. 1-08-1332 (9-1-09) affirmed that because the parties sought declaration of choice of law, Defendants must make record through evidentiary hearing to show conflict of laws, and to establish that Indiana law applies, or the forum state’s (Illinois) law will apply in the absence of a conflict of law as established on the record. This decision will have an impact on Illinois cases.
