TDR won an important appellate victory in the Illinois Appellate Court for its client BorgWarner Inc.  The appellate court’s opinion affirms the circuit court’s decision that BorgWarner was entitled to receive certain documents from its indemnitees notwithstanding their claim that the attorney-client privilege blocked disclosure.

The December 9th edition of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin quoted TDR partner Caesar A. Tabet as saying: “It really is an important case that involves a cover-up of serious contamination that has resulted in contract indemnity liability in excess of $150 million.  The appellate court’s decision is a critically important decision involving contract indemnity.”
