OUR TALENTED ATTORNEY
Attorney Brian Anderson, through his involvement with Wisconsin Defense Counsel’s Amicus Committee, authored an “Amicus Curiae” brief which was submitted to the Wisconsin Supreme Court on a case involving applicability of Wisconsin’s Recreational Immunity statute. An Amicus brief is submitted by someone not a party to the case, but with an interest in the outcome. In Lang v Lions Club of Cudahy, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court agreed with the position of the defendants (as advocated by Attorney Anderson’s and WDC’s Amicus brief) and reversed the Appellate Court, holding the defendants in the case were entitled to recreational immunity and dismissal of the case was warranted.
For Christmas the past two years, our staff and attorneys raised money and purchased toys for the HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Children’s Hospital Child Life Program. Everson Legal Assistant/Paralegal Julie OBranovich spearheaded the effort as this is a charity close to her heart. Her son, Kemper, is a former patient at St. Vincent’s Children’s Hospital. Julie, Kemper and their family received wonderful support from the Child Life Program. (Kemper’s doing great!)
