Hunsaker & Moske Fighting for Clients’ Right to a Fair Trial in a Dental Malpractice Case

St. Louis Office Managing Partner Richard Hunsaker and Of Counsel Attorney Karen Moske of Heyl Royster are fighting for their clients’ right to a fair trial in a dental malpractice case. This week, Hunsaker and Moske filed a motion to vacate a judge substitution order, arguing that the plaintiff engaged in inappropriate judicial forum shopping by dismissing the complaint prior to trial, refiling it, and then seeking a new judge. Hunsaker cites Illinois Supreme Court precedent in support of his argument and asserts that his clients were deprived of their right to object.
