Judy Littman Successfully Moves for Dismissal of Malpractice Case

Lewis Johs Partner Judith Littman was recently successful in having the case against her clients, a Family Practice Physician and his practice, dismissed from a malpractice action without the need for trial.  The plaintiff alleged that the defendants were negligent for failing to timely diagnose and treat cancer.  Judy moved to dismiss the case on the grounds that the action was not brought within the requisite statute of limitations, and that the  continuous treatment doctrine (which would extend the statute of limitations) did not apply.  The court agreed with Judy and dismissed the case in its entirety.
