AP/San Jose Mercury News, December 12, 2008

A Los Angeles jury has ordered Kaiser Permanente to pay $7.5 million in punitive damages to a radiologist who was forced to resign from one the company's hospitals after complaining about patient care. The jury's decision means Kaiser owes Michael Martinucci, MD, a combined $11.4 million. The same panel recently awarded the doctor $3.9 million in compensatory damages.
