Illinois Appellate Court Affirms Sanctions Award
The Illinois Appellate Court recently affirmed the trial court’s order in Merdinger v. The John Buck Company, et al. imposing more than $75,000 in sanctions against plaintiff Greg Merdinger for bringing a frivolous lawsuit against defendant David Anderson. Barack Ferrazzano Litigation Group co-chair Roger Stetson and partner Alison Leff represented Mr. Anderson in the lawsuit. In granting Mr. Anderson’s motion for sanctions, the trial court agreed that the plaintiff had no basis for naming Mr. Anderson as a defendant, and dismissed the case against Mr. Anderson with prejudice.
