Client: Over 20 female client employees and patients of a doctor.
Problem: Doctor was engaging in alleged malpractice and harming the clients. Despite complaints, the doctor’s employer, a large medical provider, took no action.
Approach: Multiple lawsuits were commenced against the doctor and his employer for malpractice and negligent retention and supervision claims, plus battery. Multiple motions for summary judgment were successfully opposed and Howard won a critical discovery motion which gave plaintiffs access to information for which medical providers typically enjoyed protection from discovery. That discovery victory caused the defendants to participate in a day long mediation.
Solution: Mediation of all cases resulted in a near seven figure settlement.
