Barney Madsen, partner at Fillmore Spencer, won an appeal at the Utah Court of Appeals and made some new law. In Craig v. Provo City, the district court had dismissed Mr. Madsen’s case ruling that the State Savings Statute did not apply to the Governmental Immunity Act. The Court of Appeals reversed the district court’s ruling and stated expressly that the Saving Statute does in fact apply to the Governmental Immunity Act. The Court of Appeals reinstated the case and remanded it to the District Court for further proceedings.
Barnard N. Madsen’s current practice focuses on intellectual property, employment law, commercial litigation, and appeals. For four years running, he has been voted by other attorneys in the state as one of Utah’s Legal Elite in intellectual property and business litigation.
