Excessive “Nature Of The Case” Does Not Warrant Striking

In this tax dispute, the bank’s brief in the court of appeals contained a 4½-page “Nature of the Case” section. That was “excessive,” according to the Second District Illinois Appellate Court. But the bank’s excessiveness did not interfere with review of the case, so the court declined to strike that section of the brief.
