Kenneth C. Brostron successfully defended a surgeon in a jury trial ending January, 26 2017. The 11-1 verdict came after the jury deliberated for one and half hours. The Plaintiff claimed that the surgeon was negligent in cutting her common and hepatic ducts during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The physician recognized the injury immediately and obtained assistance to repair. The doctor maintained such an injury is a reported complication of the surgery and was the result of the peculiar anatomy of the plaintiff.
Andrew G. Toennies recently won an appeal in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals when they overturned a verdict at the District Court level on a Spoliation case against Brand Energy Services LLC and Dynegy Inc. The appellate court reversed the District Court’s decision dismissing the case and sent the case back to the US District Court in Benton, IL for a trial on the merits. Mr. Toennies also was able to secure a judgment for the same client against the employer before the Illinois Industrial Commission on two separate occasions. He is now seeking sanctions and attorney’s fees against the employer Brand in state court in Randolph County, IL.
