In an Oct. 18 article regarding the Illinois Supreme Court’s 6-1 ruling that affirmed a St. Clair County court decision granting summary judgment to general contractor Keeley & Sons, the Record incorrectly identified plaintiff and defense attorneys.
St. Louis attorney Debbie Champion and Belleville attorney Russell Scott represented Keeley & Sons which prevailed in the case.
Columbia attorney Anthony P. Gilbreth and Belleville attorney Georgiann Oliver represented the plaintiffs.
At issue was whether Keeley had a duty to preserve a cement I-beam that collapsed during a bridge reconstruction on Highway 154 near Sparta and injured three of its employees.
The Record regrets the error.
