Recent Illinois Case: Klein v. Cavanaugh

Posted on Updated on

In this unpublished opinion, the First District affirmed the trial court’s decision in favor of the defendant attorneys. The plaintiff alleged, among other things, that his lawyers improperly represented him and his employer at the same time and supported his employer’s board members who wanted to – and ultimately did – terminate the plaintiff’s employment. The court held that the lawyers’ conduct did not proximately cause any damages because the plaintiff would have been fired regardless of the lawyers’ breach of fiduciary duty.
