Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. Obtains $600,000 Settlement in Jackson v NIU

This week, the Board of Trustees for Northern Illinois University approved a settlement reached with Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. client Keith Jackson in the amount of $600,000. As reported by the Northern Star, “Jackson served as university controller from October 1999 to May 2014. He was placed on involuntary administrative leave, and his annual appointment was not renewed in February 2016. Jackson brought the lawsuit against NIU, Baker and Suttenfield in October 2015, alleging the defendants denied him substantive and procedural due process by placing him on involuntary administrative leave, publicized implications that Jackson was engaged in a felony, threatened to terminate him for cause, failed to process his grievances and terminated him, all causing substantial adverse economic effect on Jackson.” For further information about the Firm, please visit
