Quick tip – Illinois affidavits

If you submit an affidavit in Illinois under Rule 191 (ie supporting/resisting summary judgment) the affidavit MUST say that the witness can competently testify to the facts recited therein.

Simple enough, but I’ll bet many people forget this requirement or don’t know it at all. Just add this sentence at the end of every affidavit you do.
