Northern Illinois University Law Review Vol. 42, Editor-in-Chief
- Achieved multiple dismissals on behalf of a local county sheriff's department, its deputies, and staff facing an unusual deluge of meritless inmate civil rights lawsuits, including allegations of unsanitary conditions, delays in medical treatment, and unlawful assessment of medical copayments. Four dismissals with prejudice were achieved, saving the client significant time and expense in defending these baseless claims.
