Danny Mullin and Jeff Nichols were successful in the Second District Court of Appeals of Illinois when it affirmed the trial court’s summary judgment decision. The case involved a bar fight that originated inside the defendant’s bar and carried out into the parking lot where plaintiff was struck in the head with a baseball bat sustaining significant and permanent injuries resulting in almost $1 Million in medical treatment. After the plaintiff made a $1 Million policy-limit demand and threats of bad faith, the lower court in Winnebago County, Illinois granted summary judgment to the neighborhood bar. The Court of Appeals confirmed the lower court’s finding that the bar owed no duty for unforeseeable events such as the fight that took place in the parking lot. The bar employees were unaware that the fight took place.
