Church Knocks Out Kung Fu Claim

Bill Weiler and Kristen Cemate were successful in convincing a Cook County judge to grant a motion for summary judgment they filed on behalf of a church. The plaintiff, a participant in a kung fu exhibition held on the church’s property, had alleged that she was injured due to the church’s failure to provide a safe location for the exhibition. The court agreed with Mr. Weiler and Ms. Cemate that the church did not owe the plaintiff a duty of care and dismissed all of the plaintiff’s claims against the church.
