Case Reports

Welcome to the July/August 2011 issue of Case Reports. Please click here to view the issue. 

In this issue, we report on Wendling v. Southern Illinois Hospital Services, where the Illinois Supreme Court held that the common fund doctrine did not apply to a hospital’s lien on the settlement proceeds in the patient’s personal injury lawsuit. We also report on Christmas v. Dr. Donald W. Hugar, Ltd., where the appellate court held that the trial court properly dismissed a medical malpractice action against two podiatrists where the author of the section 2-622 report was not a licensed podiatrist at time he made the report.
