Dismissal in Favor of Client Affirmed by Minnesota Court of Appeals

Joe Nilan, Jake Merkel, and Dan Ellerbrock recently secured an affirmance of the dismissal of claims brought against the firm’s client.  The court of appeals held that the claims were barred by a valid waiver and release, and affirmed the district court’s dismissal of plaintiff’s complaint.  The court of appeals also rejected plaintiff’s claims that the waiver should be invalidated on statutory or public policy grounds.
