IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
R.F. TECHNOLOGIES, INC., an Illinois
Corporation, et al.,
LeCLAIR RYAN, P.C., a Virginia
Professional Corporation, et al.,
Case No. 17 C 1886
Coplaintiffs R.F. Technologies, Inc. and Bob Noorian, together with Greenberg Traurig,
LLP ("GT"), one of the defendants in this action, have filed a "Joint Stipulation To Dismiss the
Complaint Against GT With Prejudice and Without Costs" (the "Stipulation To Dismiss,"
Dkt. No. 38) and a "Joint Motion for a Good Faith Finding" (the "Joint Motion," Dkt. No. 37),
with the Joint Motion being tendered pursuant to the Illinois Joint Tortfeasor Contribution Act,
740 ILCS 100/1 et seq. (the "Contribution Act"). This Court has given full consideration to both
of those filings, and it finds:
As for the Stipulation To Dismiss, it is the product of arms'-length
settlement negotiations between the parties and appears to be a perfectly
reasonable resolution of the dispute between the coplaintiffs and GT.
As for the Joint Motion, it too appears highly persuasive in explaining the
good faith predicate for the requested finding under the Contribution Act.
It is nonetheless true, as Joint Motion ¶ 8 sets out, that codefendants LeClair Ryan, P.C.
and Thomas O'Leary should have the opportunity to challenge the just-stated tentative
conclusions. Accordingly those codefendants are given leave to file such a challenge on or
before August 17, 2017 failing which this Court anticipates granting the Joint Motion. 1

If those codefendants do not wish to mount such a challenge, this Court would
appreciate their filing a statement to that effect as a matter of courtesy.
