Fleming Law Office in Central Illinois

Trials & Civil Litigation

John Fleming represented a vehicle repair shop that held a vehicle in storage outside overnight, and the vehicle experienced damage.  The vehicle owner sued the repair shop under a bailment theory, since the vehicle was returned in damaged condition to the owner.  John achieved a not guilty ruling in favor of the repair shop, as plaintiff failed to prove the case.  

John Fleming defended a private golf course arising out of an incident where a golfer fell out of a golf cart and suffered injury. The trial court held that the golf course owner was not responsible for a defect on a golf cart owned by a private person using the golf course, and dismissed the claims arising out of a defective golf cart vehicle.
