Landmark notary case overturned by Illinois Supreme Court 

The case of Vancura v. Katris involved an employee notary who notarized what turned out to be a fraudulent signature on a real estate document.

The appellate court had held that employers were responsible not only for the actions of their staff notaries, but for also ensuring they were properly trained. The Illinois Supreme court reversed the decision, and effectively put the burden of competency back upon individual notaries.

Ohio employers are still responsible for the actions of their staff notaries. Mandatory notary training will be part of Ohio's new notary laws, and will result in more knowledgeable,competent notaries to better serve the public.
