Statute of Limitations for Tortious Interference with Expectancy

Map_illinois

The relevant statute of limitations for tortious interference with an expectancy is the one applicable to claims to recover property. 

In Bjork v. O’Meara, 986 N.E.2d 626 (Ill. 2013), the Supreme Court of Illinois held that the statute of limitations applicable to actions for tortious interference with an expectancy is the six-year statute applicable to actions to recover property and not the six-month statute applicable to will contests.

Special thanks to William LaPiana (Professor of Law, New York Law School) for bringing this case to my attention.
