    Matt Furton and Josh Fliegel Quoted in Chicago Daily Law Bulletin Article on Client Paddock Publications’ Effort to Block Opposing Counsel’s Appearance in Federal Court

    Articles

    Chicago Partner Matt Furton and Chicago Associate Josh Fliegel were recently quoted in a Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article on the efforts of their client, Paddock Publications Inc., to block opposing counsel’s appearance in federal court based on an alleged pattern of rule-breaking in trial courts around the country. On behalf of Paddock, the owner of the Daily Herald newspaper, Furton and Fliegel contended opposing counsel “has displayed a surprising disregard for court rules in cases throughout the country,” including the violation of multiple Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Northern District of Illinois local rules in the litigation against Paddock and in other cases.

    In response to the motion, Furton noted, “I don’t expect I’ll ever do it again. We opposed the motion because we knew we had information that would assist in the administration of justice, not just in our case but in at least a dozen other cases in the Northern District of Illinois.”
