Synopsis:

DBMS defended the target general contractor in this well-publicized action, the first "sick-building" case tried in Illinois.

The case involved two essential claims: a mass tort claim by 130 building occupants and a multi-million dollar economic loss claim by the building owner, the County of DuPage.
