March 19, 2020

Eric Steinhoff successfully upheld a dismissal of a claim against his client when the South Dakota Supreme Court affirmed the dismissal in a case involving Federal Government education dollars embezzled by an individual who then committed multiple murders and suicide.  The Court agreed that the Plaintiffs’ claim that the embezzled money would have provided them additional services under the program if it had not been stolen was properly dismissed because the Plaintiff’s did not have standing to bring a lawsuit.
