Congratulations to Nilan Johnson Lewis’ team of Dave Schooler, Ellen Brinkman, Erin Conlin, and Dan Supalla for garnishing two favorable results on behalf of U.S. Bank in the month of October. Both cases involved age bias claims.
Recently, the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued a favorable decision to NJL’s client, the University of St. Thomas, that has broad application to all private colleges and universities in the state of Minnesota. Not only did the Court affirm the District Court decision in favor of St. Thomas, but it also eliminated a new and problematic duty of care created by the District Court that would have applied to student discipline for non-academic misconduct.
Minnesota law firm Nilan Johnson Lewis (NJL) announces it has added four new attorneys and promoted three attorneys to shareholder, effective immediately. The additions represent the firm's largest acquisition of talent in its history and brings its employee count to 56 attorneys and 36 other professionals.
