KLRW Wins Summary Judgment in Pharmacy Malpractice Cases

KLRW PREVAILS ON BEHALF OF INSURER IN COVERAGE CASE
September 14, 2020

Jim Lisovicz, Julia Talarick, and Kathleen Devlin were successful in obtaining summary judgment in two pharmacy malpractice cases. In both cases, the plaintiffs alleged that the pharmacy damaged the plaintiffs by improperly and negligently dispensing opioids and other CDS. One plaintiff, a stock broker, claimed the pharmacy’s negligence prevented him from working and asserted a lost wage claim in excess of $100,000,000. The other case was a wrongful death case. In that case, the court held, among other things, that the Learned Intermediary doctrine barred plaintiffs’ claim against the pharmacist.
