jQuery error in IE with animate

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
Hey guys,

The code in question is at www.isthatclear.com/svcm. To get the error, click on "Services."

This animation/fade code works perfectly in Firefox and looks amazing. In IE, it's totally broken and looks horrible. When I click on Services, it gives me this error listed in the code box.
Also listed in the code box is the contents of the .js file I'm using for the animation.

Any ideas?
