Church Gets Summary Judgment in Cook County

Bill Weiler and Mike Radak were successful in convincing a Cook County, Illinois judge to grant their motion for summary judgment on behalf of a church in a premises liability case. The plaintiff, who had been severely injured when she fell down stairs on the church’s property had claimed that the church’s stairway violated various building codes and had not been properly maintained. Mr. Weiler and Mr. Radak showed that their was no evidence to support plaintiff’s claims that the stairway caused the plaintiff’s accident. The court dismissed the plaintiff’s case with prejudice.
