Michael J. Denning, Heyl, Royster, Voelker & Allen, Rockford, MI, tried a medical malpractice case to a jury in Ogle County, Illinois. He obtained directed verdict for his client, a general surgeon. The Plaintiff underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and suffered a subsequent bile leak, which was repaired by Mike’s client. The Plaintiff sued both the surgeon who performed the cholecystectomy and Mike’s client, asserting claims of professional negligence against both physicians with respect to the cause of the bile leak and the method of repairing it. The Plaintiff claimed over $115,000 in medical bills, as well as past and future pain and suffering, loss of a normal life and disfigurement. After four days of trial, Mike moved for directed verdict for his client, and the Court granted the motion.
