Representative Cases

  • Ms. Pigeon received a favorable ruling for one client when the court granted Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. The case involved an alleged breach of a collective bargaining agreement, and alleged employment discrimination. The case was dismissed in its entirety, after the federal district court found that Plaintiffs failed to adequately plead the elements of a so-called "hybrid" claim under Section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act.
  • Ms. Pigeon received a favorable ruling for the client when the court granted a major national developer’s Motion to Dismiss based on Illinois’ construction statute of repose, petitioner’s failure to state a cause of action for fraud, and petitioner’s improper use of Rule 224. The petitioner sought to identify parties allegedly responsible for construction defects in association with a commercial property in Sangamon County, Illinois and claimed millions in damages. Petitioner sought to pursue allegations for fraudulent misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, and breach of contract.
