Jury awards family $55M in Hopkins malpractice case, largest in state history

The Baltimore Sun, June 28, 2012

Their saga and evidence presented in their court case convinced a Baltimore Circuit Court jury to award them $55 million—one of the largest malpractice judgments in Maryland history, according to trial lawyers and legal experts.
