Illinois Supreme Court Rule 12(b)(3) has what can only be called “curious, perjurious requirements.” They are curious because they require affiants to state under penalty of perjury that they have personal knowledge of events that have not yet occurred. They are perjurious because they require affiants to state under penalty of perjury that they already performed an act when in fact they did not and could not have performed the act at the time the affidavit was executed.
