    Robert A. Clifford, senior partner at Clifford Law Offices and monthly columnist for the Chicago Lawyer magazine, wrote his September, 2013 column entitled, “No Immunity for Negligence.” In his article, Clifford discusses a recent Illinois Supreme Court decision which held that the Chicago Park District was immune from tort liability when they negligently removed snow and ice from a facility parking lot ultimately leading to the death of a patron. Clifford explains that because tort immunity for government entities is the exception to the common law rule, “it must be strictly construed against the governmental entity claiming immunity.” Clifford examines the issue of immunizing public entities from liability when negligent conduct is involved.
