Summary Judgment victory

John C. Versnel, III, Aaron P. Gilligan, and Daniel C. Mooney won summary judgment in Perez v. Pediatric DDS.  Plaintiff claimed $15,000,000 in damages when a minor child suffered permanent right eye blindness after undergoing general anesthesia for extensive dental treatment. John and Aaron moved to dismiss plaintiff’s claims, citing lack of evidence of proximate cause. Dan argued in reply that, even after a three-month continuance, plaintiff still lacked admissible expert testimony on causation. The court denied the motion. John and Dan moved for reconsideration, at which point Plaintiffs came forward with the required testimony. Dan argued the new evidence was untimely and not proper on reconsideration. The court agreed, reversing its prior ruling, and dismissing all of Plaintiff’s claims with prejudice. Paralegal Helen Mooney was instrumental in the motion as well.
