Judge Enters Directed Verdict in Favor of Church

A Cook County judge entered a directed verdict in favor of Bill Weiler’s client, a church in a case in which the plaintiff suffered serious injuries due to a fall on the church’s property. The plaintiff had alleged that her injuries had been caused by the church’s failure to properly maintain its property. Mr. Weiler argued that the plaintiff had failed to submit sufficient evidence to allow the case to go to the jury. The judge agreed and dismissed the case after the plaintiff rested.
