(735 ILCS 5/5-126)
(from Ch. 110, par. 5-126)
Costs after tender.
Whoever is guilty of a trespass or
injury or whoever owes another unliquidated damages or demands arising out
of a contract may at any time, before or after suit is brought, tender what
he or she shall conceive sufficient amends for the injury done or to pay
the unliquidated damages or demands; and if suit has been commenced, also
the costs of suit up to the time of making the tender. If it appears that
the sum tendered was sufficient amends for the injury done or to pay the
damages, and if suit has been commenced was also sufficient to pay the
costs of suit up to the time of making the tender, the plaintiff shall not
be allowed to recover any costs incurred after the tender, but shall be
liable to the defendant for the defendant's costs incurred after that time.
