Walmart Wins At NJ High Court In Fight Over Medical Terms
March 4, 2019
Day Pitney's representation of Walmart is noted in a Law360 article, entitled "Walmart Wins At NJ High Court In Fight Over Medical Terms." As noted in the article, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued an opinion in favor of Walmart rejecting an April 2017 appellate court ruling. The Supreme Court held that medical experts may use terms like "somatization" and "symptom magnification" at trial to explain inconsistencies between plaintiffs' claims of personal injury and medical evidence. The Court also reinstated the jury's verdict of no cause of action in favor of Walmart.
Day Pitney attorneys Mike Furey and Kevin Duffy are mentioned as well as co-counsel Patrick McDonnell of McDonnell & Associates.
