Won a defense summary judgment for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation As Receiver in a civil lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Plaintiffs filed a thirteen (13) count complaint against the FDIC As Receiver for Amcore Investment Group, N.A. (“Amcore”) and other defendants. This victory is especially large because cross motions for summary judgment were filed, and Plaintiffs’ last demand claimed damages in excess of $1.24 Million on transactions where the balance on loans to the Plaintiffs escalated from $5.6 Million to $10.6 Million. The District Court Judge rejected Plaintiffs’ motion outright, granted our motion, and dismissed the matter entirely.
