Q: Illinois supreme appellate court decision: mandate - appeal dismissed what does this mean in a civil case?
An Illinois attorney could advise best on this, but you await a response for four weeks. As a GENERAL matter, dismissed means thrown out by a court. Also as a GENERAL matter, dismissals can be with prejudice, without prejudice, subject to being vacated, etc. But you need more than just GENERAL commentary on a generic legal term. The best thing to do might be to reach out to an attorney in Illinois who is experienced in employment matters and show them the court papers. Good luck
