Remember anybody can file suit over anything. Even if a lawyer won't take the case, your mother can always file pro se. You real question is, 'Can she win?" That answer is No barring any unusual circumstances.
Yes she can file suit. No, it is unlikely that her suit to enforce grandparent's rights in Illinois would be successful.
