Steve Johnson and Chris Dunsing were retained to represent a southern Illinois car dealership sued for odometer fraud, breach of warranty and violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act. Understanding the risks associated with attorney’s fees awarded in consumer litigation and having identified an issue of proof that potentially would complicate the Plaintiff’s case against another defendant, Steve and Chris immediately negotiated a nuisance value settlement with the Plaintiff before the co-defendant filed a cross-claim against the firm’s client. After achieving a quick and favorable dismissal of the Plaintiff’s claims, Steve and Chris completed the limited discovery needed to prepare and argue a motion for summary judgment on behalf of the dealership. This excellent result saved the client thousands of dollars in defense cost and prevented the risk of trial.
