I'm not an Illinois lawyer, and I don't know all of the facts of your mother's case, so there's no way for me to give reliable advice on what she should do. But it certainly sounds as if she should be able to do something, so she needs to talk to a lawyer in her area as soon as possible.  One place to look for a qualified attorney is our website:  http://attorneypages.com

Some states have laws that help tenants fight against landlord retaliation.  Even without those laws, if this eviction attempt isn't about money but something else, it will probably come down to who is believed when they testify in court -- and a good lawyer can use the failed eviction from last year to make the landlord look very hard to believe.

Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
