Recent Illinois Case: Becker v. McCarthy

Posted on Updated on

In this recent case, a divorce litigant alleged that her lawyer should have raised a property distribution issue in a motion to reconsider after a divorce judgment.   The First District affirmed dismissal.  The Court reasoned that the underlying trial court had already heard and rejected the plaintiff’s argument in the divorce case, so the plaintiff was not harmed by any failure to raise the issue in a motion to reconsider.
