Rick Grossman argues important case before the Illinois Supreme Court

On May 22, 2012 prominent Chicago personal injury attorney Rick Grossman argued an important case before the Illinois Supreme Court against the Chicago Park District in an effort to benefit all individuals that suffer serious injuries upon public recreational property.

There currently exists in the State of Illinois an "immunity" statute which excuses the negligent conduct of governmental entities that own recreational property. Grossman's client was caused to fall at a Chicago park as a result of negligent snow relocation activities. The park claimed immunity citing the statute. Grossman successful argued before the trial and appellate courts that since the park district did not own the snow nor was it part of the actually park the subject statute did not apply. The park district then petitioned the Illinois Supreme Court to review the lower courts holdings. The high court accepted the case followed by the recent oral argument.

A video of the oral argument is posted upon the Supreme Courts web page using the following link: http://www.state.il.us/court/Media/On_Demand.asp

A decision of the Illinois Supreme Court is expected later in the year.
