Defense Verdict for Physician

After a five week trial in Saratoga County, Karen A. Butler received a defense verdict on behalf of a family practice physician. The allegations included failure to diagnose and treat ascending cholangitis a condition plaintiff developed when plaintiff's common bile duct became obstructed. The plaintiff became septic, suffered cardiac arrest and claimed to have brain damage. Plaintiff's attorney, Cynthia LaFave, called over 15 doctors to testify including specialists in cardiology, surgery, radiology, family practice, neurology and psychology. A jury of four men and two women found the defendant doctor did not deviate from any standard of care in his treatment of the plaintiff.
