Ancel Glink Defense E-News Released

Ancel Glink released the Second Quarter, 2013 edition of its Defense E-News, containing summaries of a number of recent cases involving government entities and other news important to local governments and their officials and employees.  The E-News summarizes four cases addressing governmental tort immunity protections and two Title VII employment retaliation cases, among others.  As an example, the E-News includes a summary of the following recent case:

Governmental Immunity: Actual or Constructive Notice

City had no actual or constructive notice of 2 inch height differential in sidewalk.

Zameer v. City of Chicago, 2013 IL App (1st) 120198 (July 19, 2013)

The Illinois Appellate Court ruled in favor of the City under Section 3-102 of the Tort Immunity Act after determining there was insufficient evidence of either constructive or actual notice to the City of a two inch height difference between two sidewalk slabs where the plaintiff fell and was injured. The Court found the plaintiff failed to meet her burden to provide facts showing the City had notice of the condition that caused her fall with adequate time to have repaired the sidewalk.
