IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 24, 2012
ELAINE BRUEGGEMANN, AS INDEPENDENT EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF HENRY N. EDWARDS, DECEASED, PLAINTIFF,
ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY, INC., A CORPORATION, AND OWENS & MINOR DISTRIBUTION, INC., A CORPORATION, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Pending before the Court is defendant Owens & Minor Distribution, Inc.'s motion for summary judgment (Doc. 78). On July 20, 2012, plaintiff filed an opposition to defendants' motions for summary judgment (Doc. 84). In this response, plaintiff confesses the motion for summary judgment as to the negligence count against Owens & Minor. However, plaintiff opposes Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc.'s motion for summary judgment as to the strict liability claim. Thus, the Court GRANTS Owens & Minor Distribution, Inc.'s motion for summary judgment (Doc. 78). The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court at the close of the case to enter judgment in favor of Owens & Minor Distribution, Inc. and against Elaine Brueggemann, as Independent Executor of the Estate of Henry N. Edwards, deceased.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
