The Podium and Panel Podcast

The Podium and Panel Podcast

By Dan Cotter and Pat Eckler

Each podcast episode, Pat Eckler and Dan Cotter will cover several oral arguments and decisions in civil matters at the Illinois Appellate Court and Illinois Supreme Court, with the occasional coverage of SCOTUS and other appellate courts.

The purpose of the podcast is to inform of developments that may affect business and are not to be considered legal advice. They do not create a lawyer-client relationship. Information on previous case results do not guarantee a similar future result. The opinions are their own and do not reflect those of the firms for which they work or their clients.

In Episode 6, we will discuss two oral arguments before the Supreme Court of the United States, Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski and AMG Capital Management, LLC v. FTC, and one before the Seventh Circuit, Platinum Supplemental Insurance v. Guarantee Trust Life Insurance. Uzuegbunam deals with our old friend standing and whether nominal damages are sufficient to support Article III standing for a constitutional violation. AMG Capital Management, LLC is an important case for the textual means of statutory interpretation and deals with whether the Federal Trade Commission can seek restitution in federal court. Platinum Supplemental concerns means of contract interpretation and what sources can be used to interpret a term that is unambiguous.
