Plaintiff’s Attempt to Enlarge “Damages Pie” Gets Nixed by Court

August 25, 2021

Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Sammi L. Renken, and Associate Attorney, Ava L. Caffarini, achieved a dismissal with prejudice for their healthcare client who was sued for consumer fraud under the Illinois Deceptive Trade Practices Act.  The Court agreed with defense’s contention that despite plaintiff’s argument that the case involved fraud, it was really a case for personal injury improperly brought as a fraud case -- presumably in an attempt to attain attorney fees and punitive damages which were plead.  Defendants brought a Motion to Dismiss which was granted with prejudice.
