Milan v. Korein

Posted on Updated on

The Southern District of Illinois dismissed malpractice claims against a client’s first set of lawyers as time barred because the allegations in the complaint revealed that the client knew of his claims more than two years prior to filing suit. However, the plaintiff’s malpractice claims against his replacement attorneys were not dismissed; the court gave the pro se plaintiff leeway in pleading a malpractice claim based on allegations that the replacement lawyers pressured him to settle the underlying suit.
