Supreme Court Grants Summary Judgment in Favor of Defendant OB/GYN Practice

GS LLP obtained summary judgment on behalf of its client, an OB/GYN practice, in a lawsuit alleging a negligent failure to diagnose breast cancer. It was alleged that the defendant negligently failed to inform the plaintiff that a mammogram was of questionable malignancy. In support of the motion, we submitted expert affirmations in OB/GYN and oncology establishing that the care was appropriate, and that any alleged delay in diagnosis was insignificant with respect to prognosis. GS LLP successfully persuaded the Court that plaintiff's expert affirmation in opposition failed to establish with sufficient particularity that the alleged delay significantly decreased the plaintiff's chance for cure, and all claims against our client were dismissed.
