Both the United States Supreme Court and the Illinois Supreme Court issued opinions in highly anticipated cases this week.
Today, the Illinois Supreme Court remanded the case of Carle Foundation v. Cunningham Township to the circuit court for further proceedings after finding that the circuit court’s Rule 304(a) finding was improper and the appellate court, therefore, lacked jurisdiction to review the circuit court’s order granting a motion for summary judgment on one of the counts in the plaintiff’s complaint. Specifically, the Illinois Supreme Court held that the summary judgment granted by the circuit court disposed only of one of the issues before the court, not an entire claim, and therefore, was not appealable under Rule 304(a). The Illinois Supreme Court did not address the issue of whether Section 15-86 of the Property Tax Code is constitutional.
