1 M.R IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS Order entered February 16, (Deleted material is struck through and new material is underscored.) Effective immediately, Supreme Court Rules 13, 206 and 306 are amended and Rule 183 is corrected as follows. Amended Rule 13 Rule 13. Appearances Time to Plead Withdrawal (a) Written Appearances. If a written appearance, general or special, is filed, copies of the appearance shall be served in the manner required for the service of copies of pleadings. (b) Time to Plead. A party who appears without having been served with summons is required to plead within the same time as if served with summons on the day he appears. (c) Appearance and Withdrawal of Attorneys. (1) Addressing the Court. An attorney shall file his written appearance or other pleading before he addresses the court unless he is presenting a motion for leave to appear by intervention or otherwise. (2) Notice of Withdrawal. An attorney may not withdraw his appearance for a party without leave of court and notice to all parties of record, and, unless another attorney is substituted, he must give reasonable notice of the time and place of the presentation of the motion for leave to withdraw, by personal service, or by certified mail, or a third-party carrier, directed to the party represented by him at his last known business or residence address. Such notice shall advise said party that to insure notice of any action in said cause, he should retain other counsel therein or file with the clerk of the court, within 21 days after entry of the order of withdrawal, his supplementary appearance stating therein an address at which service of notices or other papers may be had upon him. (3) Motion to Withdraw. The motion for leave to withdraw shall be in writing and, unless another attorney is substituted shall state the last known address of the party represented. The motion may be denied by the court if the granting of it would delay the trial of the case, or would otherwise be inequitable.
2 (4) Copy to be Served on Party. If the party does not appear at the time the motion for withdrawal is granted, either in person or by substitute counsel, then, within three days of the entry of the order of withdrawal, a copy thereof shall be served upon the party by the withdrawing attorney in the manner provided in paragraph (c)(2) of this rule, and proof of service shall be made and filed. (5) Supplemental Appearance. Unless another attorney is, at the time of such withdrawal, substituted for the one withdrawing, the party shall file in the case within 21 days after entry of the order of withdrawal a supplementary appearance, stating therein an address at which the service of notices or other papers may be had upon him. In case of his failure to file such supplementary appearance, notice, if by mail or by third-party carrier, shall be directed to him at his last known business or residence address. Adopted June 15, 1982, effective July 1, 1982; amended February 16, 2011, effective immediately. Corrected Rule 183 Rule 183. Extensions of Time This The court, for good cause shown on motion after notice to the opposite party, may extend the time for filing any pleading or the doing of any act which is required by the rules to be done within a limited period, either before or after the expiration of the time. Corrected February 16, 2011, effective immediately. Amended Rule 206 Rule 206. Method of Taking Depositions on Oral Examination (a) Notice of Examination; Time and Place. A party desiring to take the deposition of any person upon oral examination shall serve notice in writing a reasonable time in advance on the other parties. The notice shall state the time and place for taking the deposition; the name and address of each person to be examined, if known, or, if unknown, information sufficient to identify the deponent; and whether the deposition is for purposes of discovery or for use in evidence. (1) Representative Deponent. A party may in the notice and in a subpoena, if required, name as the deponent a public or private corporation or a partnership or association or governmental agency and describe with reasonable particularity the matters on which examination is requested. In that event, the organization so named shall designate one or more officers, directors, or managing agents, or other persons to testify on its behalf, and may set forth, for each person designated, the matters on which that person will testify. The subpoena shall -2-
3 advise a nonparty organization of its duty to make such a designation. The persons so designated shall testify as to matters known or reasonably available to the organization. (2) Audio-Visual Recording to be Used. If a party serving notice of deposition intends to record the deponent s testimony by use of an audio-visual recording device, the notice of deposition must so advise all parties to the deposition. If any other party intends to record the testimony of the witness by use of an audiovisual recording device, notice of that intent must likewise be served upon all other parties a reasonable time in advance. Such notices shall contain the name of the recording-device operator. After notice is given that a deposition will be recorded by an audio-visual recording device, any party may make a motion for relief in the form of a protective order under Rule 201. If a hearing is not held prior to the taking of the deposition, the recording shall be made subject to the court s ruling at a later time. If the deposition is to be taken pursuant to a subpoena, a copy of the subpoena shall be attached to the notice. On motion of any party upon whom the notice is served, the court, for cause shown, may extend or shorten the time. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties or ordered by the court, depositions shall not be taken on Saturdays, Sundays, or court holidays. (b) Any Party Entitled to Take Deposition Pursuant to a Notice. When a notice of the taking of a deposition has been served, any party may take a deposition under the notice, in which case the party shall pay the fees and charges payable by the party at whose instance a deposition is taken. (c) Scope and Manner of Examination and Cross-Examination. (1) The deponent in a discovery deposition may be examined regarding any matter subject to discovery under these rules. The deponent may be questioned by any party as if under cross-examination. (2) In an evidence deposition the examination and cross-examination shall be the same as though the deponent were testifying at the trial. (3) Objections at depositions shall be concise, stating the exact legal nature of the objection. (d) Duration of Discovery Deposition. No discovery deposition of any party or witness shall exceed three hours regardless of the number of parties involved in the case, except by stipulation of all parties or by order upon showing that good cause warrants a lengthier examination. (e) Motion to Terminate or Limit Examination. At any time during the taking of the deposition, on motion of any party or of the deponent and upon a showing that the examination is being conducted in bad faith or in any manner that unreasonably annoys, embarrasses, or oppresses the deponent or party, the court may order that the examination cease forthwith or may limit the scope and manner of taking the examination as provided by these rules. An examination terminated by the order shall be resumed only upon further order of the court. Upon the demand of the objecting party or deponent, the taking of the deposition shall be suspended for the time -3-
4 necessary to present a motion for an order. The court may require any party, attorney or deponent to pay costs or expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, or both, as the court may deem reasonable. (f) Record of Examination; Oath; Objections. The officer before whom the deposition is to be taken shall put the witness on oath and shall personally, or by someone acting under the officer s direction and in his or her presence, record the testimony of the witness. The testimony shall be taken stenographically, by soundrecording device, by audio-visual recording device, or by any combination of all three. The testimony shall be transcribed at the request of any party. Objections made at the time of the examination to the qualifications of the officer taking the deposition, to the manner of taking it, to the evidence presented, or to the conduct of any person, and any other objection to the proceedings, shall be included in the deposition. Evidence objected to shall be taken subject to the objection. In lieu of participating in the oral examination, parties served with notice of taking a deposition may transmit written questions to the officer, who shall propound them to the witness and record the answers verbatim. (g) Videotaped Depositions. Except as otherwise provided in this rule, the rules governing the practice, procedures and use of depositions shall apply to videotaped depositions. (1) Depositions which are to be recorded on an audio-visual recording device shall begin by the operator of the device stating, on camera, (1) the operator s name and address, (2) the date, time and place of the deposition, (3) the caption of the case, (4) the name of the witness, (5) the party on whose behalf the deposition is being taken, and (6) the party at whose instance the deposition is being recorded on an audio-visual recording device. The officer before whom the deposition is being taken shall identify himself or herself and swear the witness on camera. At the conclusion of the deposition the operator shall state on camera that the deposition is concluded. If the deposition requires the use of more than one videotape, the end of each videotape and the beginning of each succeeding tape shall be announced on camera by the operator. (2) The operator shall initially take custody of the videotape of the deposition and shall run through the videotape to determine the exact length of time of the deposition. The operator shall sign an affidavit stating the length of time of the deposition and shall certify that the videotape is a true record of the deposition and shall certify that the operator has not edited or otherwise altered the videotape. A deposition so certified requires no further proof of authenticity. If requested by any party at the conclusion of the taking of the deposition, the operator shall make a copy of the videotape and deliver it to the party requesting it at the cost of that party. (3) A videotape of a deposition for purposes of discovery only shall be returned to the attorney for the party at whose instance the deposition was videotaped. Said attorney is responsible for the safeguarding of the videotape and shall permit the viewing of and shall provide a copy of the videotape upon the -4-
5 request and at the cost of any party. A videotape of a discovery deposition shall not be filed with the court except by leave of court for good cause shown. (4) A videotape of a deposition for use in evidence shall be securely sealed by the operator, in an envelope bearing the title and number of the action, and marked Deposition(s) of (here insert name(s) of deponent(s)), and promptly filed or sent by certified mail to the clerk of the court for filing. Upon payment of reasonable charges therefor, the operator shall furnish a copy of the videotape to any party or the deponent. (5) The party at whose instance the videotaped deposition is taken shall pay the charges of the videotape operator for attending and shall pay any charges for filing the videotape of an evidence deposition. (6) The videotape of a deposition may be presented at trial in lieu of reading from the stenographic transcription of the deposition. (h) Remote Electronic Means Depositions. The parties may stipulate in writing, or the court may upon motion order, that a deposition be taken by telephone, videoconference, or other remote electronic means. Any party may take a deposition by telephone, videoconference, or other remote electronic means by stating in the notice the specific electronic means to be used for the deposition, subject to the right to object. For the purposes of Rule 203, Rule 205, and this rule, such a deposition is deemed taken at the place where the deponent is to answer questions. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph (h), the rules governing the practice, procedures and use of depositions shall apply to remote electronic means depositions. (1) The deponent shall be in the presence of the officer administering the oath and recording the deposition, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. (2) Any exhibits or other demonstrative evidence to be presented to the deponent by any party at the deposition shall be provided to the officer administering the oath and all other parties within a reasonable period of time prior to the deposition. (3) Nothing in this paragraph (h) shall prohibit any party from being with the deponent during the deposition, at that party s expense; provided, however, that a party attending a deposition shall give written notice of that party s intention to appear at the deposition to all other parties within a reasonable time prior to the deposition. (4) The party at whose instance the remote electronic means deposition is taken shall pay all costs of the remote electronic means deposition, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. Amended September 8, 1975, effective October 1, 1975; amended January 5, 1981, effective February 1, 1981; amended July 1, 1985, effective August 1, 1985; amended June 26, 1987, effective August 1, 1987; amended June 1, 1995, effective January 1, 1996; amended October 22, 1999, effective December 1, 1999; amended February 16, 2011, effective immediately. -5-
6 Committee Comments (February 16, 2011) Paragraph (h) The Committee is of the opinion that the apparent acceptance and utilization of telephonic and other remote electronic means depositions demonstrate that there is no need to require a party to obtain an order on motion to proceed with such depositions absent a written stipulation. Therefore, the Committee recommended the elimination of such a requirement so that the depositions may proceed by notice. Amended Rule 306 Rule 306. Interlocutory Appeals by Permission. (a) Orders Appealable by Petition. A party may petition for leave to appeal to the Appellate Court from the following orders of the trial court: (1) from an order of the circuit court granting a new trial; (2) from an order of the circuit court allowing or denying a motion to dismiss on the grounds of forum non conveniens, or from an order of the circuit court allowing or denying a motion to transfer a case to another county within this State on such grounds; (3) from an order of the circuit court denying a motion to dismiss on the grounds that the defendant has done nothing which would subject defendant to the jurisdiction of the Illinois courts; (4) from an order of the circuit court granting or denying a motion for a transfer of venue based on the assertion that the defendant is not a resident of the county in which the action was commenced, and no other legitimate basis for venue in that county has been offered by the plaintiff; (5) from interlocutory orders affecting the care and custody of unemancipated minors, if the appeal of such orders is not otherwise specifically provided for elsewhere in these rules; (6) from an order of the circuit court which remands the proceeding for a hearing de novo before an administrative agency; or (7) from an order of the circuit court granting a motion to disqualify the attorney for any party; (8) from an order of the circuit court denying or granting certification of a class action under section of the Code of Civil Procedure (735 ILCS 5/2 802).; or (9) from an order of the circuit court denying a motion to dispose under the Citizen Participation Act (735 ILCS 110/1 et seq.). If the petition for leave to appeal an order granting a new trial is granted, all rulings of the trial court on the posttrial motions are before the reviewing court without the necessity of a cross-petition. -6-
7 (b) Procedure for Petitions Under Subparagraph (a)(5). (1) Petition; Service; Record. Unless another form is ordered by the Appellate Court, review of an order affecting the care and custody of an unemancipated minor as authorized in paragraph (a)(5) shall be by petition filed in the Appellate Court. The petition shall be in writing and shall state the relief requested and the grounds for the relief requested. An appropriate supporting record shall accompany the petition, which shall include the order appealed from or the proposed order, and any supporting documents or matters of record necessary to the petition. The supporting record must be authenticated by the certificate of the clerk of the trial court or by the affidavit of the attorney or party filing it. The petition, supporting record and the petitioner s legal memorandum, if any, shall be filed in the Appellate Court within 14 days of the entry or denial of the order from which review is being sought, with proof of personal service or facsimile service as provided in Rule 11. A copy of the petition for leave to appeal must also be served upon the trial court judge who entered the order from which leave to appeal is sought. (2) Legal Memoranda. The petitioner may file a memorandum, not exceeding 15 typewritten pages, with the petition. The respondent or any other party or person entitled to be heard in the case may file, with proof of personal service or facsimile service as provided in Rule 11, a responding memorandum within five business days following service of the petition and petitioner s memorandum. A memorandum by the respondent or other party may not exceed 15 typewritten pages. (3) Replies; Extensions of Time. Except by order of court, no replies will be allowed and no extension of time will be allowed. (4) Variations by Order of Court. The Appellate Court may, if it deems it appropriate, order a different schedule, or order that no memoranda be filed, or order that other materials need not be filed. (5) Procedure if Leave to Appeal Is Granted. If leave to appeal is granted, the circuit court and the opposing parties shall be served with copies of the order granting leave to appeal. All proceedings shall then be subject to the expedited procedures set forth in Rule 311(a). A party may allow his or her petition or answer to stand as his or her brief or may elect to file a new brief. In order to allow a petition or answer to stand as a brief, the party must notify the other parties and the Clerk of the Appellate Court on or before the due date of the brief. (c) Procedure for All Other Petitions Under This Rule. (1) Petition. The petition shall contain a statement of the facts of the case, supported by reference to the supporting record, and of the grounds for the appeal.

A supporting record conforming to the requirements of Rule 328 shall be filed -7-

If the Appellate Court orders that an abstract of the record be filed, it shall be in the form set forth in Rule 342(b) and shall be filed within the time fixed in the order. (4) Extensions of Time. The above time limits may be extended by the reviewing court or a judge thereof upon notice and motion, accompanied by an affidavit showing good cause, filed before expiration of the original or extended time. (5) Stay; Notice of Allowance of Petition. If the petition is granted, the proceedings in the trial court are stayed. Upon good cause shown, the Appellate Court or a judge thereof may require the petitioner to file an appropriate bond. Within 48 hours after the granting of the petition, the clerk shall send notice thereof to the clerk of the circuit court. (6) Additional Record. If leave to appeal is allowed, any party to the appeal may request that additional portions of the record on appeal be prepared as provided in Rule 321 et seq., or the court may order the appellant to file the record, which shall be filed within 35 days of the date on which such leave was allowed. The filing of an additional record shall not affect the time for filing briefs under this rule. (7) Briefs. A party may allow his or her petition or answer to stand as his or her brief or may file a further brief in lieu of or in addition thereto. If a party elects to allow a petition or answer to stand as a brief, he or she must notify the other parties and the Clerk of the Appellate Court on or before the due date of the brief and supply the court with the requisite number of briefs required by Rule 341(e).
