Not Guilty Jury Verdict for Anesthesia / Pain Management Specialist

Pretzel & Stouffer partner, Brian Sundheim, and Senior Associate, Shauna Martin, recently obtained a jury verdict in Cook County, Illinois in favor of an anesthesiologist/pain management specialist. The plaintiff claimed that defendant failed to recognize plaintiff’s drug seeking behavior, continued to prescribe opioid medications despite family concerns, and had an inappropriate close personal relationship with her during treatment, all of which prolonged her addiction and delayed her rehabilitation. After Plaintiff’s attorney requested over $2.6 million, the jury returned a verdict in just over an hour in favor of defense.
