Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

If any defendant or respondent to any such relief by ne exeat is damaged, he or she may bring an action on such bond; and, if, on trial, it is determined by the court that such relief by ne exeat was applied for without just cause, the person affected shall recover damages, to be assessed as in other cases on penal bonds.

Where relief is sought under Article XVI of this Act and the court determines, on motion directed to the pleadings, or on motion for summary judgment or upon trial, that the plaintiff or petitioner has pleaded or established facts which entitle him or her to relief but that he or she has sought the wrong remedy, the court shall permit the pleadings to be amended, on just and reasonable terms, and the court shall grant the relief to which plaintiff or petitioner is entitled on the amended pleadings or upon the evidence. In considering whether a proposed amendment is just and reasonable, the court shall consider the right of the defendant or respondent to assert additional defenses, to demand a trial by jury, to plead a counterclaim or third party complaint, and to order the plaintiff or petitioner to take additional steps which were not required under the pleadings as previously filed.
