Heyl Royster Team Wins Fifth District Appeal on behalf of Madison County


In an appeal connected to a former Madison County Treasurer’s handling of tax sales, Mike Schag presented oral argument at the Fifth District Court of Appeals on June 21, 2016, arguing that claims of “sale-in-error” and money “had and received” cannot be sustained validly against Madison County.  The court agreed, and on September 7, 2016, the court issued an opinion decertifying a class action as to the claims against Madison County and remanding them for dismissal. In addition to Mike Schag, the Heyl Royster team representing Madison County consisted of Ann Barron, Patrick Cloud, Greg Flatt and Craig Unrath
