Represented a major livestock producer located in Illinois in a public and private nuisance lawsuit filed in Illinois state court. The plaintiffs alleged that the client's largest livestock facility was both a public and private nuisance. The trial court dismissed the plaintiffs’ public nuisance claims at the summary judgment stage of the proceedings. Following a three-week trial, the jury returned a defense verdict on all of the private nuisance claims. The Illinois Fifth District Appellate Court affirmed both the summary judgment regarding public nuisance and the jury’s verdict regarding private nuisance.

Represented the same client in an insurance coverage declaratory judgment action filed by the client’s insurance carrier. Following an extended discovery and extensive briefing, the trial court ruled that the insurance carrier owed a duty to defend under several insurance policies and ordered the company to pay our client for the fees and costs associated with defending the nuisance lawsuit.
