Judith Littman Obtains Summary Judgment Dismissal of Surgical Malpractice Case

Lewis Johs Partner Judith Littman recently obtained summary judgment dismissal of a case against her clients, two general surgeons. Plaintiffs claimed that the surgeons were negligent in failing to diagnose metastatic  cancer and for improperly allowing the plaintiff’s decedent to undergo unnecessary surgical decompression of the lumbar spine which allegedly resulted in the wrongful death of the patient. Judy argued that the defendants provided care and treatment within the standard of care and that their care and treatment was not the proximate cause of the plaintiffs’ decedent’s injuries or his death. The Court adopted Judy’s arguments and granted summary judgment dismissal.
