Becker, Weiler Win Appeal before the Illinois Second District Appellate Court

Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP Partners Jeffrey S. Becker and Catherine Basque Weiler have won an appeal before the Illinois Second District Appellate Court, which affirmed a summary judgment on behalf of their client, a national homebuilder in a large homeowner class action.

The plaintiffs were all residents of the same suburban subdivision and claimed that the homebuilder was responsible for damages caused by leaky windows in their homes.  At the trial court level, Becker defeated the plaintiffs’ request for class certification, then established that their claims were untimely. On appeal, Weiler successfully defended the summary judgment.
