Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,

The Code of Civil Procedure is amended by
changing Section 13-207 as follows:
(735 ILCS 5/13-207)
(from Ch. 110, par. 13-207)
Counterclaim or set-off.
A defendant may
a set-off or counterclaim barred by
the statute of
or the statute of repose
, while held and owned by
him or her, to any action,
the cause of which was owned by the
plaintiff or person under whom he
or she claims, before such
set-off or counterclaim was so barred, and not
section shall not affect the right of a bona

negotiable instrument assigned before due.
The changes made to
this Section by this amendatory Act of the 102nd General
