Summary Judgment in Crossing Case Affirmed by Illinois Court of Appeals

DMG is pleased to announce a recent victory in the Illinois Court of Appeals on behalf of a long-standing railroad client.

The crossing case was originally tried downstate in 2009 and resulted in a defense verdict in favor of DMG’s client. The plaintiffs did not appeal, but instead, they filed a lawsuit in Cook County District Court alleging spoliation.

DMG’s Ray Groble, Kevin Baldwin and Brian George joined the trial team and filed a summary judgment motion premised on res judicata and collateral estoppel. The court granted our client’s motion, and the plaintiffs appealed. Ultimately, the Illinois Court of Appeals affirmed the circuit court’s summary judgment in favor of our client.

We and our client are proud of this excellent result!
