Court denies Blackhawks' request to dismiss suit filed by second ‘John Doe’

March 25, 2024

... The Blackhawks wrote in their filing that the player filed his lawsuit 13 years after he was allegedly assaulted by Aldrich. In Illinois, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years, the team wrote.

The player’s lawyers argued that the limitations period was moot because the player didn’t learn until more recently about the behind-the-scenes actions of Blackhawks officials in 2010.

Jason Friedl, an attorney with the Chicago law firm Romanucci & Blandin, said in an interview with TSN Monday that a trial in the case, if it gets to that point, probably won’t happen before mid-2026.
