No Legislative Revival of Causes of Action in Illinois

The Illinois Supreme Court has determined that the legislature cannot amend a statute of limitations so as to revive causes of action that had expired under a previous version of the legislature.  This will no doubt impede the litigation of childhood sexual abuse claims, as it has in this particular case. 

See Doe v. Diocese of Dallas, 2009 WL 3063427 (Ill.), or see here for the opinion.
