Mass Tort & Class Action

Bostick, et al v. County of DuPage v. Defendant Construction Company

12/01/1994
Client:

Defendant Construction Company

Outcome:

Defense Verdict; Verdict in favor of client in counterclaim against DuPage County

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.

The jury found in favor of the general contractor on all primary claims tried and awarded the entirety of the claimed final payment sought in a counterclaim against the building owner.
