In re J.M.A., a Minor

The People of the State of Illinois, Appellee,


J.M.A., Appellant.

No. 125680

Supreme Court of Illinois

January 22, 2021



¶ 1 In this case, one Justice of this court has recused himself, and the remaining members of the court are divided so that it is not possible to secure the constitutionally required concurrence of four judges for a decision (see Ill. Const. 1970, art. VI, § 3). Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed. The effect of this dismissal is the same as an affirmance by an equally divided court of the decision under review but is of no precedential value. See Perlman v. First National Bank of Chicago, 60 Ill.2d 529, 530 (1975).

¶ 2 CARTER, J., took no part.
