Kyle Wallor, a Partner in our Litigation Department, successfully secured a summary judgment in excess of $5,800,000 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The client initiated suit asserting breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, conversion, money had and received, an action for an accounting and piercing the corporate veil against a vendor. The vendor contested all claims, largely on the basis this was nothing more than a general debt. The Court granted summary judgment in the client’s favor on the claims of breach of fiduciary duty, conversion and an accounting.
Congratulations to Bill Lamson and Denise Destache on a recent defense verdict. The case involved a shoulder surgery with subsequent complications. However, following three and a half days of testimony, it took an Omaha jury less than an hour to return a verdict in favor of our defendant physician in a case tried in Douglas County District Court.
