Daniel Grill and Jonathan Danko Win Appeal, Affirming Their Summary Judgment Victory for a Defendant Anesthesiologist
August 02, 2021
After winning summary judgment at the Trial Court level, Daniel Grill and Jonathan Danko recently prevailed on an appeal filed with the Superior Court. The action was brought against an anesthesiologist who allegedly took a photograph of Plaintiff prior to Plaintiff’s procedure and then subsequently texted the photograph to the Plaintiff. The Plaintiff claimed professional negligence, breach of physician-patient confidentiality, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, with the Plaintiff also requesting punitive damages.
Daniel and Johnathan obtained summary judgment for the anesthesiologist because the Plaintiff failed to produce sufficient evidence to support her claims, which included a failure to produce expert testimony. A more thorough summary of the Court’s decision can be found in the August 2021 liability eNotes.
