Illinois is a state, a state like no other. It is a state worth fighting for, for it would be a shame losing everything in it. “it is the 5th most popular state and the 25th largest states in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country”(n.d 1). Illinois is a state in the midwestern United State. Illinois is considered to be home for many. “by 1900, the growth of industrial jobs in the northern cities and coal mining in central and southern areas attracted immigrants from eastern and southern Europe”(n.d 3). When people had no where to run, Illinois was and is the place.

It’s recommended that John Deere keep Complex Parts as it’s main supplier for several reasons. As far as retaining the services of Complex Parts on a short term basis, it would help because of lower company costs. Finding another producer is a very expensive process, one that does not guarantee the same quality of products, and without proper research and evaluation, could prove costly for John Deere. Complex Parts has always been a good business partner and throughout the years has earned a good reputation in terms of quality and delivery, and it would be best for John Deere to give the supplier the opportunity to correct its shortcomings. The recent single quarter fall back may have been due to unforeseen events or caused by sudden issues within the organization, which can probably be fixed quickly.

The object of the first stage of the process is to ascertain the nature of the rights and obligations which the parties intended to grant each other in respect of the charged assets. Once these have been ascertained, the Court can then embark on the second stage of the process, which is one of categorization and designed to attribute the correct legal label to the package of rights and obligations.
