Moch Argues Case before Illinois Supreme Court

On March 15, 2017, Eric W. Moch, a partner in the Chicago office, argued a case before the Illinois Supreme Court.

Moch represents Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha Corporation, and the Eta Nu chapter at Northern Illinois University in Bogenberger v. Pi Kappa Alpha, et. al., Docket Nos. 120951,120967 & 120986. The case arose from the alcohol-related death of a student during a social event at the Eta Nu chapter house in November 2012. The Supreme Court is weighing the state of social host liability law in Illinois, as well as the scope of the Hazing Act.

Video of the argument can be viewed here. (Moch’s argument seeking affirmation of the dismissal of the fraternity and corporation begins at the 40:00 mark of the video.)
