Purcell & Wardrope Senior Associate Amy Frantz was recently awarded 2nd place in the Illinois State Bar Association Lincoln writing contest for her article titled “What's So Special About Special Interrogatories?” The article was published in the May 2020 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal.
In the article, Amy discusses the substantial amendments to the Illinois statute governing the use of special interrogatories at trial. These amendments went into effect for all trials starting January 2020 and have important implications for parties considering issuing special interrogatories to a jury. The article also discusses practical tips for attorneys on the use of special interrogatories.
