(735 ILCS 5/2-107)
(from Ch. 110, par. 2-107)
Costs and expenses of transfer.
The costs attending a transfer shall be taxed by the clerk of the
court from which the transfer is granted, and, together with the filing
fee in the transferee court, shall be paid by plaintiff. If the court
granting the transfer finds that venue was fixed by plaintiff in bad
faith and without probable cause, then it may order the reasonable
expenses of defendant in attending and obtaining a transfer to a proper
venue, including a reasonable attorney's fee, to be paid by plaintiff.
If the costs and expenses are not paid within a reasonable time, the
transferring court shall on motion dismiss the action.
