Trial was to start next week in Dowell v. University of Utah, #160905517, Third District Court for Salt Lake County (Judge Kara Pettit). However, a settlement has been reached for a confidential amount. Trial is off.  

​This was a Salt Lake wrongful death claim arising out of a hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (stroke) in a 52-year old man after minimally-invasive mitral valve repair.

Counsel are Mike Worel and Charlie Thronson​ for plaintiffs; Terry Rooney and Adam Sorenson for defendant.

Note- the case file contains many motions in limine that might be of interest in future medical malpractice trials.
