Scott G. Christesen Receives Decision from Appellate Department to Affirm Defense Verdict

In March 2011, Scott G. Christesen received a decision from the Appellate Division Second Department which affirmed the June 2009 jury verdict obtained by Alan Fumuso, in an action involving claims of obstetrical malpractice against our client. It was asserted that the plaintiff sustained significant neurological injuries due to hypoxia experienced shortly before her birth. The appellate court determined that the favorable jury verdict was reached after a fair and reasonable view of the evidence and that the trial court had appropriately rendered evidentiary rulings during the course of the trial.
