The Illinois Single Refiling Rule and the Pending Appeal in US. Bank Trust National Association v. Yoshimoto Naka, et al.,

The Illinois single refiling rule came back into vogue in 2018 with the ruling in First Midwest Bank v. Cobo, 2018 IL 1230038, where the Illinois Supreme Court held that where two prior actions involving the same note and mortgage are dismissed and the default date has not changed, it results in the secured lender's eventual loss of the benefit of its security if a third attempt to foreclose on those documents is made. The Cobo decision highlights an important consideration for entities involved in consumer lending and mortgage servicing: the fact that the single refiling rule only provides "two bites at the apple."
