The Illinois Supreme Court announced yesterday afternoon that it will release two opinions [pdf] on the morning of Thursday, July 15th, including one civil case:

  • No. 108888, Krywin v. Chicago Transit Authority, which presents the issue of whether the “natural accumulations rule,” which provides that a business owner generally has no duty to take precautions against natural accumulations of snow and ice, trumps a common carrier’s duty to furnish a passenger an opportunity to safely alight and reach a place of safety?
