Another Win for the Defense-Jeannette Andrews and Joe Longfellow obtain summary judgment in Medical Malpractice caseAugust 2, 2021 |
On August 2, 2021, Jeannette Andrews and Joe Longfellow had a hearing on a Motion for Summary Judgment in a medical malpractice case against Capital Regional Medical Center. The case involved a patient leaving the hospital against medical advice. A prior motion for summary judgment had been filed two years ago under the old summary judgment, but was re-filed with additional arguments under the new summary judgment standard in Florida in accordance with Wilsonart, LLC v. Lopez. Following oral arguments, the Court entered summary judgment on behalf of all the defendants. This was a big win on behalf of the hospital as the Plaintiffs were seeking millions of dollars in damages.
