I think the article is excellent, however it should include mention of Illinois Supreme Court Rule 182(a)and also a case or two about how long after someone fails to file an answer to an affirmative defense may then ask and get leave of the court to file an answer. SC Rule 182(a) allows 21 days, are there any cases which allow for more time?


I think this is a great article but with awful citation use. It's great that the cases are cited at the end but they should be referenced throughout the article.
