Fourth District: No Jurisdiction, But Directions

The plaintiff in this case attempted to appeal a circuit court’s order refusing to reopen a file. The Fourth District determined that the order was not appealable as a final or non-final order and dismissed the appeal.

Interestingly, despite the lack of jurisdiction, the appellate court observed that the rules of civil procedure do not permit a case file to be closed simply for being dormant and directed the circuit court clerk to reopen the file.

A peculiar win.
