- In the case of Delaney v. McDonald’s Corporation, Bryan represented McDonald’s, the owner of a construction site at which a worker was injured. The trial and appellate courts held that a dismissal of the worker’s claim against the electrical contractor precluded McDonald’s from seeking contribution from the contractor. The Illinois Supreme Court reversed the lower courts and reinstated the contribution claim.
