Insurance 101 – Chapter 13 – Volume 24 – Restraint on Independent Counsel

Restraint on Independent Counsel

The two attorneys assigned to the case had never tried a malpractice action. One had never taken depositions in any bodily injury action. Counsel billed 1,129.5 hours for one summary judgment motion described by one of Chicago’s expert witnesses as a “hopeless waste of time.” The total bill for the wasted motion was $180,000. The expert further testified that it was “inconceivable that there weren’t disputes as to issues of fact.”
