American Family Mut. Ins. Co. v. Cintas Corp. No. 2 383 Wis. 2d 63, 914 N.W.2d 76 (Wis. 2018)

After a fire that caused approximately $900,000 in property damage at a senior living facility, Cintas Corporation faced a suit for negligence in connection with its inspections of the facility’s fire-suppression system. Based on an indemnification clause in its contract for inspection services, Cintas was protected from claims by the facility, including for Cintas’ own alleged negligence. After the trial court granted a motion for summary judgment against Cintas on its indemnification claim, Quarles & Brady achieved a reversal at the Court of Appeals and an affirmance of that reversal at the Wisconsin Supreme Court, protecting Cintas from liability and ensuring the terms of the contract were honored.
