Douglas J. Swart Secures Defense Verdict in Nassau County

In February 2006, Douglas J. Swart obtained a defense verdict for his client, a specialist in Internal Medicine, in a case brought by a 60 year old man alleging that the defendants failed to timely diagnose a pituitary tumor, resulting in bilateral blindness. The case was tried in Supreme Court Nassau County before Judge Thomas Phelan. After a three week trial, and with the plaintiff seeking 5 million dollars in damages, the jury found that the defendant was not negligent in her care and treatment of the plaintiff.
