A Malpractice Claim Was Dropped

A recent claim of malpractice against a physician was dropped after intense trial preparation and investigation. Joseph A. Catania, Jr. reports that the plaintiff in a medical malpractice suit had claimed medical negligence against his client, a noted Westchester County spine surgeon and others. The trial was scheduled to begin in Ulster County Supreme Court but just before jury selection, the plaintiff discontinued the action and abandoned all claims against the physician. The defense had lined up important experts to assist in the defense of the claims and had conducted intense background investigation. The trial preparations uncovered evidence that, contrary to the plaintiff's claims of inability to work, she was working while also collecting workman's compensation.
