Docket No. 107755.
THE STATE OF ILLINOIS
In re MARRIAGE OF MARY JACQUELINE ABRELL, Appellant,
and JOHN GEORGE ABRELL, Appellee.
Opinion filed February 4, 2010.
JUSTICE THOMAS delivered the judgment of the court, with
Chief Justice Fitzgerald and Justices Freeman and Karmeier
concurred in the judgment and opinion.
Justice Garman dissented, with opinion, joined by Justices
Kilbride and Burke.
At issue in this case is whether unused vacation days and sick
days are marital property subject to distribution in an action for
dissolution of marriage. The circuit court of Sangamon County held
that those days were marital property. The appellate court affirmed in
part and reversed in part. 386 Ill. App. 3d 718. We now affirm the
appellate court’s decision.
