Winnetka Resident Co-Authors Article in “Illinois Bar Journal”

Winnetka resident Christopher T. Hurley and Mark R. McKenna, partners with the law firm of Hurley McKenna & Mertz, in Chicago, are the authors of “‘Wrongful Birth’ Plaintiffs Can Recover for Emotional Distress,” an article which appears in the November 2013 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal, the monthly magazine of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA).

 

In the article, the authors review the Illinois Supreme Court’s Clark v. Children’s Memorial Hospital decision which holds that parents can recover for emotional distress if they win a claim for negligent genetic counseling, even if they suffered no direct physical injury.

 

The 32,000-member ISBA (isba.org), with offices in Springfield and Chicago, provides professional services to Illinois lawyers, and education and services to the public through a website (illinoislawyerfinder.com), consumer brochures, and distribution of legal information.
