CHICAGO — An estate executor is suing River North of Bradley Health and Rehabilitation Center LLC, Dynamic Healthcare Inc., Benjamin Friedman and Marshall Mauer, citing alleged negligence and wrongful termination.

Lawrence Dell'Aquila filed a complaint Aug. 3 in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of the estate of Eleanor Dell'Aquila..

Additionally, the plaintiff claims Eleanor Dell'Aquila's next of kin suffered the loss of her companionship and society as a result of her death on Sept. 6, 2016. 

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment greater than $50,000, costs of the lawsuit and other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Michael Silverman of Horwitz, Horwitz and Associates Ltd. in Chicago.
