Follow-up to Fennell

Recently, we posted about the decision of the Illinois Supreme Court interpreting (and putting more teeth in) the forum non conveniens doctrine.  See Fennell v. Illinois Central.

A  tip of the hat to faithful reader Brendan Kenny at Blackwell Burke for noting that the decision is already having important effects.  Here, and here, are three recent Illinois appellate decisions overturning lower court denials of defendants’ forum non conveniens motions.
