Eight Heyl Royster Attorneys Featured in Recent IDC Quarterly Publication



Eight Heyl Royster attorneys were featured in the most recent issue of the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel Quarterly publication (Vol. 26, No. 2). In this issue, Roger Clayton, Mark Hansen, and Matt Thompson co-authored a feature article entitled, "Illinois Supreme Court Addresses Various Physician Claims in Case of a Negligent Credentialing Claim in Klaine v. Southern Illinois Hospital Services." This article discussed the implications of Klaine on the information collected by a hospital during the physician credentialing process.

Brian Smith authored the Civil Rights Update, which provided a brief review of the constitutional questions raised for citizens and officers arising during internal investigations, criminal prosecution and civil rights lawsuits. Brad Keller wrote the Evidence and Practice Tips column and highlighted the recent case of Aliano v. Sears and challenging to attorneys' fees in a Consumer Fraud Act case.

In her Recent Decisions column, Stacy Crabtree discussed the recent Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Noboa v. Barcelo Corporacion Empresarial, SA, which dealt with whether online reservations subjected a foreign hotel (located in Mexico) to personal jurisdiction in Illinois, and an Illinois appellate court decision in Tummelson v. White, which explored fiduciary relationships and unjust enrichment in the context of unmarried couples.

Brad Peterson and Vince Boyle authored the Workers' Compensation Report, which focused on the appellate court decision in Bayer v. Panduit Corporation, where the appellate court rejected a petitioner's attorneys' fees claim as to future medical benefits suspended by virtue of a third-party judgment. Bayer was argued before the Illinois Supreme Court on May 11.
