Scott G. Christesen Receives Decision From Appellate Division Affirms Defense Verdict

In October 2010, Scott G. Christesen received a decision from the Appellate Division Second Department which affirmed the finding of the Supreme Court in favor of our clients on a motion seeking summary judgment and dismissal of plaintiff’s complaint. This was a claim that the defendant family practice and gastroenterologists failed to timely diagnose and treat the plaintiff for a rare uterine cancer. Importantly, plaintiff counsel opposed this motion with three separate expert affidavits, totaling over 50 pages of text. Plaintiff subsequently moved for leave to the Court of Appeals and that application was denied.
