Healthcare litigator Stuart T. O’Neal secures award for hospital client in equipment dispute

Burns White healthcare litigator Stuart T. O’Neal secured the maximum arbitration monetary award available for the firm’s hospital client involving a commercial dispute over the sale of hospital equipment to a third party vendor. The hospital contended that the Tulsa, Okla.-based defendant, which it was suing, was unjustly enriched and breached a commercial sales contract with the hospital over the sale of the equipment. The defendant contended through several witnesses at the hearing, including its CEO, that a mutual mistake between the parties voided the transaction and the contract. The three-person arbitration panel found in favor of the hospital in less than twenty minutes.

Note: The results obtained in a particular case are, of course, always heavily dependent on the facts and the law specific to that case.
