This brief was filed in successful opposition to a defense motion for new trial or to reduce a large verdict for the plaintiffs in a medical malpractice trial in the District of Columbia in 2017. The brief addresses issues of: (1) alleged improper comments by plaintiff’s counsel in opening statement and closing argument; (2) an alleged improper characterization of the defendant’s negligence as “egregious” by a plaintiff’s expert witness; (3) alleged improper suggestion of an amount of damages in plaintiff’s closing argument; (4) alleged excessiveness of the verdict. The court denied the motion and affirmed the judgment at an oral hearing.

Please see full Motion below for more information.
