DiMonte & Lizak, LLC’s litigation team of Riccardo DiMonte, David Arena, Margherita Albarello and Ryan Van Osdol recently obtained a favorable settlement for their client and against the Village of Mount Prospect. In the lawsuit, various Village employees and the Village of Mount Prospect were alleged to have violated the civil RICO statute and plaintiff’s civil rights in an effort to force plaintiff to sell his property for less than fair market value. On the eve of trial, we successfully recovered a $6,500,000 settlement for our client and resolved a dispute that had been pending for approximately six years. We will publish a full article regarding this case in the next edition of the firm newsletter, but until then, see:
