Bill Sauerwein Obtains Summary Judgment in Multi-Million Dollar Mechanics Lien Suit

Bill Sauerwein obtained Summary Judgment in favor his client in a sizeable case in St.Clair County Illinois.  The Plaintiff in the case contended it was entitled to a $6.5 million dollar mechanics lien and sought priority over the lender’s $9 million mortgage.  The court found the Plaintiff was jointly interested in the project through its dealings with the owner of the property and therefore not entitled to a mechanic’s lien.  The mechanics lien sought by the lien claimant was declared invalid.
