RCT DEFEATS CHALLENGE TO WORLD MARKETING LAWSUIT
On September 26, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled in favor of RCT’s client, the World Marketing Liquidating Trust, by denying a motion to dismiss malpractice claims against the debtor’s former counsel related to its failure to advise the debtor to provide notice under the WARN Act before terminating over 300 employees located in several states. The court’s opinion addresses important issues related to the Barton Doctrine, as well as claim and issue preclusion. See Newman v. Crane, Heyman, Simon, Welch & Clar, — F. Supp. 3d —, 2018 WL 4616349 (N.D. Ill. Sept. 26, 2018).
