Chicago: Tarpey and Souferis Successfully Defend a Wrongful Death Lawsuit on Behalf of Chicago Area Teaching Hospital and Infectious Disease Physician

HPS attorneys Mike Tarpey and Bill Souferis successfully defended a Wrongful Death lawsuit at trial on behalf of their clients, a Chicago area teaching hospital and infectious disease physician from The Mayo Clinic. At the start of trial, the Court dismissed the Plaintiff’s case with prejudice, as a result of the defense’s motion for sanctions and supporting legal argument based on evidence that was improperly obtained then withheld. In granting this extreme sanction, the Court stressed the obligation of all participants to maintain the integrity of the civil justice system.
