(from Ch. 110, par. 2-105)
Defendants in different counties - Review.
In any action involving defendants residing in different counties in
which venue is based on residence and an appropriate and timely motion
to transfer is made by a defendant not residing in the county, the
overruling of the motion is not ground for reversal if he or she proceeds to
trial on the merits, unless he or she renews the motion at the close of all the
evidence and it appears from the record or the evidence that the
defendant residing within the county was joined without probable cause
and not in good faith for the purpose of obtaining a judgment against
him or her but solely for the purpose of fixing venue in that county.
