Alan J. Fumuso Secures Defense Verdict in Suffolk County

In March 2006, Alan J. Fumuso obtained a defendant’s verdict on behalf of his client, a specialist in Internal Medicine, following a four week trial in Supreme Court Suffolk County before Judge Melvyn Tanenbaum. The plaintiff, a 37 year old housewife, alleged that the defendant failed to timely diagnose colon cancer, resulting in metastasis and reduced life expectancy. The plaintiff’s attorney asked the jury for 4 million dollars in damages, but the jury returned a unanimous defendant’s verdict in one hour, finding that the defendant conformed to accepted practices in her care and treatment of the plaintiff.
