Vedder Price, on behalf of its clients National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) and Chicago Union Station Company (CUSCO), successfully sued International Property Developers North America, Inc. (IPD), the developer of the Old Chicago Post Office, in federal court. The firm obtained a consent decree that requires IPD to maintain the ventilation system within the Old Chicago Post Office around the clock. Amtrak and CUSCO alleged that IPD failed to maintain an adequate ventilation system in accordance with the parties’ agreement. According to U.S. Senator Richard Durbin, the consent decree will help to improve the air quality in Chicago’s Union Station.

Vedder Price attorneys Michael Cleveland, Chad Schiefelbein and Joshua Dunn represented Amtrak and CUSCO in the federal court litigation.

The case is Chicago Union Station Company et al. v. International Property Developers North America, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-770 (N.D. Ill.).
