  1. Best answer

    You should direct your legal questions to your attorney he or she is the best position to answer questions pertaining to your mater. It likely means your matter has been moved off the Court's calender or removed from the Judge's pending cases. This for you likely means boat drinks. Cheers.

    Of course, as always this answer is general in nature, applies only to Illinois law, assumes certain facts omitted from the question and does not take into account any facts specific to any person’s particular circumstances. No attorney/client relation is created hereunder and I highly recommend you seek first the counsel and advice of an experienced contested civil litigator prior to taking any actions relating to this matter, as seemingly insignificant actions may have unintended consequences.


  2. Likely means the case has been dismissed or will be soon, and is no longer an active case. Ask your lawyer.


  3. I agree with my colleagues, if the case is settled, the entry likely means that the court has received a stipulation of dismissal and is removing the case from its active case list. However, it could be dismissed for any number of reasons and you should call your attorney and ask for guidance.

    If this answer was helpful, please mark it as helpful or as a best answer. This answer is for general education purposes only. It neither creates an attorney-client relationship nor provides legal guidance or advice. The answer is based on the limited information provided and the answer might be different had additional information been provided. You should consult an attorney.
