Illinois court considers the applicability of the “logo liability doctrine”


U.S. Bank v. Lindsey, 920 N.E.2d 515 (2009), is an unusual case recently handed down by the Illinois First Appellate District.

In this case, the Estate of a truck unloader killed when a truck backed into him brought negligence action against truck driver and the truck leasing company. The theory of liability against the truck leasing company was that it was liable pursuant to the “logo liability doctrine” and was thus vicariously liable for the actions of the other defendant,the truck driver.
