TRIAL UPDATES
June 2014

On June 17, 2014, Scott Whonsetler and Chris Coburn obtained a unanimous defense verdict in Jefferson Circuit Court in a case where the Plaintiff alleged negligence on the part of a high-risk OB/GYN in his management of monoamniotic monochorionic  twins.  Plaintiff claimed that the monitoring was insufficient and sought over $60 million in damages for the death of one twin and impairment of the surviving twin.

Scott and Chris countered that the patient was appropriately admitted to the Hospital for monitoring, the monitoring implemented by the physician actually far exceeded any recommendations and that the injuries were likely caused by a sudden cord accident that was not preventable, establishing this proof through some of the top experts relating to this very rare pregnancy.  Tried over 3 weeks, the jury deliberated for less than 2 hours before returning their unanimous verdict.
