Alan J. Fumuso Secures Defense Verdict in Nassau County

In October 2006, Alan J. Fumuso obtained a defendant’s verdict on behalf of his client, a specialist in Internal Medicine, following a two week trial in Supreme Court Nassau County before Judge Daniel Palmieri. The matter involved a claim by Bruce Clark, a successful plaintiff’s malpractice attorney, that the defendant was negligent in failing to timely diagnose prostate cancer resulting in metastasis of the cancer and reduced life expectancy. Clark, 61, was represented by the law firm of Duffy, Duffy and Burdo, and asked the jury for a total of 3.8 million dollars in damages. The jury returned a unanimous verdict in one hour finding that the defendant did not depart from accepted practices in his case and treatment of the plaintiff.
