Keleher Wins In Seventh Circuit as Appointed Appellate Counsel

On August 24, 2011, Querrey & Harrow shareholder Christopher Keleher won a reversal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Ortiz v. Webster, No. 11-2012. Mr. Keleher was appointed by the Seventh Circuit Appellate Court to represent Arboleda Ortiz, who had sued the federal penitentiary where he was housed. Mr. Ortiz suffered from an eye condition known as pterygium and claimed the federal penitentiary was deliberately indifferent to his condition. The District Court granted the government summary judgment. Chris was then appointed for the appeal. Chris was able to persuade the Seventh Circuit that, despite the difficult burden of establishing deliberate indifference, the District Court erred. Ortiz represents a rare reversal on the issue of deliberate indifference and an important decision ensuring the federal government will be held accountable for allowing an inmate's health to deteriorate.
