RFC attorneys won a motion for summary judgment for the Sheriff of Cook County in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Castro et. al v. Dart, et. al.  In this case, four correctional officers challenged the constitutionality of an agreed-upon provision of the collective bargaining agreement that allowed the Sheriff’s Office to perform checks on correctional officers at their home when they had previously been misusing their sick time.  The provision of the CBA permitted the Sheriff’s Office to go to their homes during the hours they would have otherwise been working to ensure they were taking legitimate sick leave.  After both sides filed motions for summary judgment, the District Court sided with the Sheriff’s Office, noting that Plaintiffs lacked standing to sue because Plaintiffs could not prove there was a substantial risk that they would be subject to a home check in the future.  Congratulations to the RFC attorneys handling this case, Jay Rock, David Miller, and Austin Rahe.

RFC attorneys Pat Moran, Andrew Grill, and Chris Miller recently obtained a favorable result for a client in multi-million dollar contract dispute.  When the client came to us, his companies were facing two lawsuits collectively seeking more than $3 million in damages.  After two years of litigation, and with a trial only weeks away, the plaintiffs dropped all claims and walked away, without collecting a penny from our client.
