Docket No. 107317.
THE STATE OF ILLINOIS
MARK TURNER, Appellant, v. MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER,
Opinion filed June 18, 2009.
JUSTICE FREEMAN delivered the judgment of the court, with
Chief Justice Fitzgerald and Justices Thomas, Kilbride, Garman,
Karmeier, and Burke concurred in the judgment and opinion.
Plaintiff, Mark Turner, brought a retaliatory discharge action in
the circuit court of Sangamon County against defendant, Memorial
Medical Center (Memorial). The circuit court dismissed plaintiff’s
first-amended complaint pursuant to section 2–615 of the Code of
Civil Procedure (735 ILCS 5/2–615 (West 2006)). A divided panel of
the appellate court upheld the dismissal. No. 4–07–0934 (unpublished
order under Supreme Court Rule 23). We allowed plaintiff’s petition
for leave to appeal (210 Ill. 2d R. 315(a)), and now affirm the
judgment of the appellate court.
