Peter Kelly addresses medical, peer-review committee privileges before the Texas Supreme Court.

TSC logo

On February 25, 2015, Peter Kelly defended a discovery order requiring the disclosure of peer-review committee documents before the Texas Supreme Court.  Peter presented argument on behalf of the Respondent, Dr. Miguel Gomez, in In re Hermann Hosp. Sys., No. 14-0171. The issue concerns whether (1) the statutory medical-committee privilege protects documents potentially discoverable under the “anticompetitive exception” to the statutory privilege and (2) the exception requires that an antitrust claim be pled.  A Law360.com article regarding the case can be viewed here (“Hospital Fights Privileged Docs“) and a summary of the issue and Peter’s argument can be viewed here.

Leighton Durham part of trial team that secures $18M+ verdict for client!

Congratulations to Rachel Montes and Todd Tracy who, along with the support of Leighton Durham, obtained an $18,745,001 verdict in the 95th Judicial District Court in Dallas County on February 13, 2015.  The jury’s verdict was based on injuries Hope Crump suffered when she was ejected from a vehicle in which she was a passenger.  Hope was rendered a paraplegic as a result of the accident.  The jury found John Goin, the driver of the vehicle, to be the primary cause of the accident.  Goin, who lost control of the vehicle and caused it to roll over, was intoxicated at the time.   A Dallas Morning News article regarding the case can be found here.
