(750 ILCS 65/1)
(from Ch. 40, par. 1001)
Rights to sue and be sued.
A married person may,
in all cases, sue and be sued without joining his or her spouse
as if unmarried. A husband or wife may sue the other for a tort
committed during the marriage. No finding by any court under
Section 401 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage
Act shall be admissible or be used as prima facie evidence of a
tort in any civil action brought under this Act. An attachment
or judgment in an action may be enforced by or against a married
person as if unmarried.
