Christopher G. Buenik and Chris Cano Win Appeal

In Snow v. Thorne Associates et al., the plaintiff, a land surveyor, filed a personal injury lawsuit alleging that Thorne Associates (“Thorne”), a subcontractor of Power Construction Company (“Power”), was negligent for stacking and storing 19 sheets of drywall that allegedly fell onto the plaintiff causing him to incur permanent injuries. After fact discovery was completed, Thorne and Power filed summary judgment motions arguing that they did not owe the plaintiff a duty and that the incident was unforeseeable.  Summary judgment was granted and plaintiff appealed on all accounts.  The appellate court affirmed summary judgment as to both Thorne and Power.  The plaintiff filed a petition for leave to appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court, which was denied.  Snow v. Thorne Associates et al, 78 N.E.3d 587, 413 Ill.Dec. 595, 2017 IL App (1st) 151226 (1st Dist. 2017).
