Just a few days ago, a Chicago law firm filed a lawsuit/proceeding against Boeing and Malaysia Airlines in Chicago’s Cook County.
Yesterday Judge Kathy Flanagan threw the case out of court, calling it without any basis and indicating that if the law firm did it again, she would sanction them. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-cook-judge-throws-out-malaysia-planesuit-filed-by-chicago-firm-20140331,0,6665514.story
In a court system frequently known for being “plaintiff friendly”, kudos to Judge Flanagan for treating the law firms filing with the respect and deference it deserves . . . . none.
