Pre-trial motion results in breast surgeon’s discontinuance from Kings County wrongful death lawsuit
Larry Bloomstein and Robert Isabella successfully obtained discontinuance of a breast surgeon charged with failing to biopsy a breast with suspicious findings found on mammography. The patient later died due to metastatic breast cancer. The litigation team successfully argued before a Kings County trial judge on the eve of jury selection that a key expert designated to testify against ARFD’s client should be precluded from doing so. The court sided with ARFD and the claims against the breast surgeon were ultimately discontinued.
