May 6, 2021 | News

Attorneys Stuart O’Neal and Courtney Barbacane obtained summary judgment on behalf of a Mercer County hospital on both punitive damages and corporate liability claims. In response to allegations of improper physician credentialing, the Court held that Plaintiff failed to produce sufficient evidence that the Hospital had prior knowledge of any defect or procedure which caused harm to the patient. The Court further noted that Plaintiff’s allegations would require the finder of fact to speculate well beyond the evidence.
