Stevens v McGuireWoods LLP

Recent Illinois Case: Stevens v. McGuireWoods LLP

Posted on Updated on

The Illinois Supreme Court affirmed the Appellate Court’s holding that individual malpractice claims were barred because plaintiff-minority shareholders were not directly injured by malpractice suffered by a corporation. The court reversed the Appellate Court’s holding that the case be remanded for consideration of whether a derivative claim was barred because the plaintiffs no longer held stock in the corporation at issue and, therefore, did not have standing to bring a derivative claim.
