SNELL & WILMER WINS DEFENSE VERDICT IN WRONGFUL DEATH TRIAL
Barry Halpern and Libby Petersen of the Network's Arizona member, Snell & Wilmer, received a unanimous defense verdict on April 5 on behalf of Scottsdale Healthcare Corp., in a combined medical negligence and premises liability wrongful death trial. The defense of their hospital client was complicated by the court's unprecedented imposition of a non-delegable duty on the hospital for the conduct of an independent staff physician. Defending without access to the non-party physician whose conduct was at issue, the Snell & Wilmer team beat back the combined efforts of the plaintiff and co-defendant's allegations of an unrecognized risk of massive bleeding due to advanced liver disease.
