Boone v. Goldberg

Appellee's Brief

This was the successful appellate brief filed by the plaintiffs in the Maryland Court of Appeals on a medical malpractice case that changed Maryland law of informed consent. The Court of Appeals ruled that physicians have a duty to inform their patients of their own lack of experience in doing a surgical procedure and that the causation test is not whether another surgeon would have done the procedure without injury to the patient, but whether a reasonable patient would have chosen a different surgeon. The court’s decision is Goldberg v. Boone, 393 Md. 242, 900 A.2d 749 (2006).
