Silence equals affirmance

February 8, 2013 by in General

According to the Illinois Supreme Court, when an appellant does not specifically appeal the circuit court’s ruling with respect to certain issues, the appellate court’s decision is silent as to those issues, and the appellant fails to seek rehearing in the appellate court to ask that the court address those issues, then the appellate court has affirmed the circuit court’s ruling as to those issues.
