Janousek v Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP
The First District affirmed the grant of summary judgment on statute of limitations grounds. The court held that the plaintiff’s suspicions that his attorney was aiding and abetting a client’s breach of fiduciary duty was sufficient knowledge to commence the statute. The court also held that the defendant attorneys did not improperly use the attorney client privilege to shield relevant information plaintiff needed to discover his claim.
