   735 ILCS 5/2-616          from Ch. 110, par. 2-616                          

        Amends the Code of Civil Procedure.  Changes the provision  under      
   which a defendant whose identity was mistaken and who was not named in      
   the  original  action  may  be made a defendant to the cause of action      
   without the application of the statute of limitations.  Requires  that      
   the  defendant  must  have  received notice of the commencement of the      
   action within the limitation period and that he or she  would  not  be      
   prejudiced  in  maintaining a defense on the merits and knew or should      
   have known that but for a mistake concerning the identity of the party      
   the action would have been brought against him or her.
