Steven E. Young Quoted in Chicago Tribune, Chicago Daily Law Bulletin and Law360 Regarding Historic Jet Car Lawsuit

January 9, 2017

Steven E. Young, partner, was quoted in today's edition of the Chicago Tribune in an article titled, "Judge Gives Jet Car Owner Green Light to Sue Museum."  Mr. Young represents Craig Breedlove, who broke land speed records and the 500-mph barrier in his Spirit of America jet car in 1965.  The car was damaged while on loan to the Chicago Museum.

"...the AAM standards "made clearer to the court" that the museum was negligent in its handling of the vehicle.  'They didn't live up to museum standards,' Young said,"  Further adding, "If it doesn't (settle), we will go forward ... and ultimately, we will see the museum in court."

Mr. Young was also quoted in the January 6 Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article, "Jet Car Case Continues Trajectory," and on the same day in Law360's article, "Chicago Museum Can't Escape Suit Over Damaged Car" (subscription required to read full article).

Mr. Young is a partner in the Los Angeles office and a member of the Litigation Department. His practice focuses on intellectual property, licensing, entertainment, real estate and general business litigation.  Mr. Young has conducted numerous jury and non-jury trials in both State and Federal Courts as well as arbitrations. He has appeared before both State and Federal Appellate Courts.

Armen G. Mitilian, partner, and Matthew A. Young, associate, are also noted in the Law360 article as part of Mr. Breedlove's legal team.
