Travelers Insurance Company v. LaSalle National Bank as Trustee, et al..

This was a foreclosure of a $15,500,000 commercial mortgage held by Mr. Leydig's client. The case went up on appeal on an issue of first impression regarding the application of Illinois' mortgagee-in-possession statute in connection with mortgages securing commercial loans. Mr. Leydig's interpretation of the statute and the trial court's order placing the client in possession of the property pending the foreclosure action were affirmed by the appellate court.
