Costello Wins Catastrophic Tent Collapse Case

Dan Costello and Shipra Mehta won summary judgment in a catastrophic case involving twenty-three injured plaintiffs including two fatalities claims and 21 other serious injuries arising out of a tent collapse at an Illinois summer festival. This case had high publicity and was featured in the Chicago media for months following the accident. With minimal discovery, this matter was pushed towards a motion for summary judgment based on the lack of duty owed and lack of proximate cause due to the event coordinator/planner’s narrow role in the event. The numerous cases had been consolidated by the Court for discovery purposes only.
