What Is the Deadline to File a Motion to Reconsider or for Rehearing ?
In Baird & Warner, Inc. v. Gary-Wheaton Bank, 122 Ill. App. 3d 136, 460 N.E.2d 840, 77 Ill. Dec. 536 (1984) the appellant simultaneously appealed from one order declaring the mortgage lien of one party superior to the rights and interests of all the other parties, and from another order subsequently denying a petition for rehearing. Baird & Warner, Inc., 122 Ill. App. 3d at 137-38.
This court acknowledged that both orders were interlocutory, but found the appeals therefrom to be untimely under Rule 307(a)(4) (188 Ill. 2d R. 307(a)(4)). Baird & Warner, Inc., 122 Ill. App. 3d at 138.
Despite the fact that the notices of interlocutory appeal had been filed within 30 days of the denial of the petition for rehearing, this court found the appeals to be untimely because "a motion to reconsider or for rehearing does not toll the 30-day deadline for filing notice of appeal following an appealable interlocutory order." Baird & Warner, Inc., 122 Ill. App. 3d at 138.
