Winston & Strawn Partner David Dahlquist was recognized in The American Lawyer's Litigator of the Week column on December 3, 2021.

This acknowledgment stems from David's work securing an important victory for client NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore), a six-hospital Chicago area health system when Judge John Kness of the Northern District of Illinois (N.D. Ill.) denied plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction and for preliminary class certification in a litigation related to the hospital's COVID-19 vaccine policy for employees. U.S. District Judge John Kness in Chicago, who had previously granted the plaintiffs' temporary restraining order, found that even if they were to succeed at trial in proving NorthShore failed to make reasonable accommodations for their religious views, their damages could be "fully compensated through the traditional legal remedy of a damages award." The Winston team also included associates Kevin Simpson, Nasir Hussain, and Savannah Murin.
