Lou La Cava and Kari Jacobson obtained c-section verdict
Lou La Cava and Kari Jacobson obtained a defense verdict in a case where the Plaintiffs alleged that a delay in performing a c-section caused the baby to be born with brain damage. The Defendants argued that the child was born with autism as a result of developmental malformations in the first or second trimester of the pregnancy. After a 7-day trial the jury returned a verdict finding the two doctors involved in the care of the patient not negligent. The jury returned the verdict after 40 minutes of deliberations.
