Recent Illinois Case: White v. Richert

Posted on Updated on

The Northern District of Illinois refused to dismiss a claim on the basis of a release given by a client to her lawyer because the complaint alleged that the release was void because it resulted from the lawyer’s breach of her fiduciary duties.

The court also refused to dismiss on statute of limitations grounds because there were factual issues regarding when the statute began to run.

White v. Richert, 2016 WL 3582083.
