A Cook County judge denied the Chicago Blackhawks’ motion to dismiss a former player’s negligence lawsuit, paving the way for the case to reach the discovery phase.

The former member of the Hawks’ 2009-10 “Black Aces” squad, identified in the suit as “John Doe,” has sued the Hawks over allegations that the team was negligent in how it handled sexual assault and harassment complaints in 2010 against then-video coach Brad Aldrich.

... “I absolutely agree with the way the judge saw things … and the rationale as to why this case should continue,” Jason Friedl, a senior attorney with Chicago-based law firm Romanucci & Blandin, told the Tribune.
