In this article, our commercial litigation lawyers discuss the ways to potentially get out of a contract. When a contract is initially made it may seem that you may be bound to it. However, there are some special cases that would excuse you from performance under the contract. The defenses include material breach by the other party, anticipatory repudiation, duress, unconscionability, impracticability, undue influence, fraud, and mistake. There are also other considerations that are discussed in the article that will make a contract illegal or unenforceable. There are one-sided clauses and contract loopholes that may get you out of a contract in the eyes of a law.
In this article, our Elmhurst commercial dispute attorneys explain motions to dismiss. The article begins by outlining the process of litigation. A Complaint is the very beginning of a case, and it outlines the allegations that would entitle the plaintiff to a claim against the defendant. A defendant, who the case is brought against, then has the choice to file an answer or a motion to dismiss. This article discusses two kinds of motions to dismiss: 2-615 and 2-619. The 2-615 motion attempts to dismiss the Complaint based on an improper statement of the cause of action. The 2-619 motion, on the other hand, attempts to dismiss the claim because there's an affirmative matter that will easily defeat the claim.
