Update: Court Decision Published

A few months ago we told you about Ms. Foster’s victory in the court of appeals. The court’s decision re-affirmed long standing precedents, from the mid 1990’s, regarding when leases survive a transfer of property during foreclosure. LCBH filed a successful motion with the court of appeals requesting that it publish this important decision. While the mortgage company opposed the publication, the court approved LCBH’s motion and the decision was published on June 28, 2013 as “Fifth Third Mortgage Company v. Foster, 2013 IL App (1st) 121361” and may now be used as authority (precedent) in other court cases around the state. It is available on the State of Illinois website (http://www.state.il.us/court/Opinions/AppellateCourt/2013/1stDistrict/11...). LCBH would like to thank Ms. Foster for her incredible tenacity as well as staff attorney Frank Avellone and law student Michael Griffin for all their hard work on this case.
