Appellate Court Affirms $16 Million Settlement for Northwestern Football Player

12.2007

The Illinois Appellate Court affirmed a Cook County judge’s authority to approve the $16 million settlement in the death of Rashidi Wheeler, a Northwestern University football player. Wheeler’s mother, Linda Will, objected to the settlement and argued that Cook County Circuit Judge Kathy M. Flanagan did not have the authority to approve it. Thomas A. Demetrio, attorney for George Wheeler, Jr., is featured in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin's  front page story on the Court's decision.
