The trustee of the land trust and the other defendants (collectively "Defendants") were served with summons and complaint pursuant to the Cook County Circuit Court's General Administrative Order 2007-03 ("GAO"), which permits law firms to serve process in foreclosure cases using special process servers approved by blanket order.
The circuit court entered orders confirming the judicial sale, substituting Plaintiff Purchaser as the plaintiff, and granting the petition for possession of the property.
Defendants filed a motion for rehearing and reconsideration, alleging in part that Plaintiff Purchaser's bid was inadequate, supporting their assertion with the same documentation used in its prior request for an extension of time.
The Appellate Court affirmed, ruling that service of process and the confirmation of the judicial sale were both proper.
Unwilling to allow Defendants to raise objections for the first time after the judicial sale had been approved because of their opportunity to do so at the hearing, the Appellate Court ruled that Defendants had waived all objections to the four enumerated statutory exceptions in Section 15-1508(b).
