Illinois Supreme Court amends rule to require notice of sale by email

On November 19, 2020, the Illinois Supreme Court amended its Rule 113 to require that notices of foreclosure sale under Section 15-1507(c) of the Illinois Mortgage Foreclosure Law must be served electronically upon all defendants who have appeared in the foreclosure case in accordance with its Rule 11. The amendment to Rule 113 follows the July 2020 amendment to Illinois Supreme Court Rule 11, which now requires self-represented litigants who have an email address to designate a single email address upon which notice shall be served. Prior to the Rule 11 amendment, self-represented litigants were permitted, but not required, to designate a single email address. Self-presented litigants who do not have an email address may still be sent notice by traditional first-class mail, personal service, or by third-party commercial carrier.
