Abstract

In Ready v. United/Goedecke Services, Inc., the Illinois Supreme Court held that settled defendants are not to be considered when apportioning liability between parties to a suit. In so holding, the court manipulated several tenets of statutory construction in novel ways. This Note analyzes the court's reasoning, the practical implications of the decision for plaintiffs and defendants, as well as the uncertain future of statutory interpretation in Illinois courts.
