Bay Group Health Care, LLC v. Ginsberg Jacobs, LLC

Posted on Updated on

The district court granted summary judgment in favor of a law firm.   The court held that signing a confession of judgment did not create an attorney client relationship between the law firm and the judgment debtor.  The court also noted that, under Illinois law, a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct does not give rise to a cause of action or duty in tort. There is no “ethical malpractice” or “professional responsibility tort” in Illinois.
