By November 2, 2023No Comments

On October 31, 2023 John Barker, Kiki Chrisomallides and Rani Kulkarni won summary judgment in a medical malpractice case brought against an individual physician and a major New York hospital. Plaintiff alleged that the defendants negligently performed a colonoscopy/polypectomy which led to a bowel perforation, sepsis, and multiple hospital admissions. Following oral argument, the Court agreed that plaintiff’s expert did not address our expert’s contentions and did not establish the required background to testify as to the standard of care for performing a colonoscopy/polypectomy, granting dismissal of all claims asserted against the defendants.
