Total Victory Obtained on Behalf of Attorney and Law Firm
James Sipchen and Quinn Donnelly were successful in obtaining the dismissal with prejudice of a Complaint filed against an attorney and the attorney’s law firm alleging that they tortiously interfered with the distribution of assets pursuant to a Transfer on Death agreement.
While the lawsuit was originally filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Jim and Quinn immediately sought to transfer the case to the Circuit Court of DuPage County.
Once the case had been transferred to the appropriate forum, DuPage County, Jim and Quinn moved to dismiss the Complaint arguing that any actions taken by their clients were protected by the absolute and qualified privileges and could not form the basis for a cause of action. The Court agreed and entered a final order dismissing the Complaint with prejudice.
