I’mnot too sure but maybe the withdrawl means they found they are in the wrong and are dropping the case? Good luck!

Call the attorney representing the Plaintiff Class and find out.  Civil procedure varies from state to state so unfortunately unless we have lawyer bees from IL, you’re not going to get your answer here.

I have phony debt collectors calling me too!!! For a loan I never took out; I can’t give you advice but I feel your pain and frustration. I wonder if it’s the same type of situation. Good luck, I hope it gets resolved as painlessly as possible!

@lola2011:  I thought you were named as a Plaintiff in a class action?  As in the class is bringing suit against the shady company.  I meant call the attorney representing the plaintiffs, ie. you.  He’s on your side.  Feel free to PM me if you have questions.  I’m a CA lawyer so while i can’t help you with specifics of the IL legal system, I can give you some general advice.

i am a lawyer, but i am not a lawyer in IL nor am i your lawyer, and this is not to be construed as legal advice.

from your first post, it looks like the class action has been decided against the company, and that you are currently awaiting the court date on 2/1 where you are the defendant and the company is the plaintiff.

if this is the case, you can simply call the court and find out the status of the case.  if you have hired a lawyer to represent you in this second matter, they would have accurate (and probably quicker) information as well.

if you call the court, identify yourself as the defendant, cite the docket or case number if you have it (they’ll need that to locate the file) and ask them what the status of the case was, explaining what you saw on line.  they will be able to tell you if the matter is still active and if you have to go to court on the 1st.

If you’re a plaintiff, call the lawyer representing the class to ask what’s going on. I think this varies from court to court, but usually the court will not help you or explain things to you if you’re represented by counsel. The attorney for the class is your attorney, I believe. (Note: I’m not a lawyer in IL, and I don’t haven’t worked with class actions. This is just my best guess.)

Okay, that helps. So you are the defendant in this case, in which they’ve filed a motion to strike or withdraw? Or something like that? Do you have a lawyer? That would be the first person to talk to. If not, try calling the court clerk and see if they can explain to you what just happened. If something has happened in your case, you should know about it.
