Three weeks ago Wilson v. IHC settled, for a confidential amount. This case involved a brain-damaged baby alleging obstetrical and nursing malpractice and has been ongoing for years. (See my blog entries for February 9, 2016 and January 28, 2016.)

There was a trial in the Fourth District which resulted in a defense verdict. That was reversed by the Supreme Court due to defense counsel’s inappropriate references to collateral source payments for medical expenses. Wilson v. IHC2012 UT 43 289 P.3d 369.

The Supreme Court also tasked the trial court with considering sanctions against defense counsel for inappropriate meetings with a treating physician. In a scathing opinion from Judge Christine Johnson, defense counsel was sternly rebuked for meetings with a treating radiologist. That opinion apparently prompted settlement talks, and the case settled.
