The U.S. Supreme Court denied our petition to take your case. This means that the case is over. There was no written opinion and no indication of the vote. There are thousands of petitions to the Supreme Court every year and only a small percentage will be heard by the Court.

We are disappointed with the outcome.  We felt that we had a good case and that fairness was on our side.  Judge Hamilton recognized the merits of our case in his strong dissent in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.  Unfortunately we were one vote short on our petition for rehearing in the Seventh Circuit.

We were honored to represent you.
