SRC Attorneys Author Amicus Curiae Brief in Landmark Case Affecting Construction Industry

Jeffrey Kubes and Michael Faley authored, on behalf of the Illinois Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Association of Licensed Architects, an amicus curiae ("friend of the court") brief in connection with the newly released Illinois Supreme Court opinion in Thompson v. Gordon. The court's decision marks a reaffirmation of the bedrock construction industry and legal principle that a design professional's contract defines the professional's scope of duty on a construction project, which has been subject to legal attack in recent years. The Thompson opinion is sure to be a landmark case for years to come and profoundly affects the interests of design and construction industry professional in Illinois and most likely throughout the entire United States. Schuyler, Roche & Crisham, P.C. are proud of the work of Jeff and Michael in helping to provide the Illinois Supreme Court with the essential perspective of design professionals and in achieving a great result here of the utmost importance to the design and construction industry.
