Recent Appellate Court Opinion Cites Michael Cortina

April 24, 2017


A recent decision, In re Marriage of Arjmand, that came down from the Second District Appellate Court of Illinois cited an article authored by Mike Cortina. The article, titled “Citations Versus Non-Wage Garnishments: Which Is Right for Your Collection Case?” was published in 2005 in the Illinois State Bar Association’s Illinois Bar Journal. In the article Mike discusses the two principal devices for reaching a judgment debtor’s assets held by banks and other non-employer third parties, and clarifies garnishments. In the opinion the court denied the plaintiff’s motion to quash garnishment proceedings in a divorce case.
