Update on White v. Behlke

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania recently issued an Order in the medical malpractice case of White v. Behlke which was tried before Judge Terrence R. Nealon in the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas and in which the jury awarded $20.5 million dollars to the Plaintiffs.

On June 17, 2009, Judge Nealon had filed an Opinion (2009 WL 1904102) denying the defendants' post-trial motions and molding the verdict to $27,352,195.21 to reflect recoverable pre-judgment interest. The Defendants appealed and on October 12, 2010, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania affirmed that decision and upheld the verdict (15 A.3d 523). The Defendants then filed a petition for allowance of appeal with the Supreme Court which was denied on March 1, 2012 (2012 WL 661788 (Pa. March 1, 2012)).
