Brown, et al. v. Credit Suisse First Boston, et al. — Mark served as Lead Attorney for the Plaintiffs in this class action which settled for $7.7 million.
Preston v. Memorial Medical Center — Mark served as 1 of 5 Plaintiff Steering Committee Members in this class action which settled for $25 million on the third day of trial.
Plaintiff v. LAMMICO, et al. — Mark represented Plaintiff (name omitted due to confidential settlement) who was a healthy 51-year-old nurse making over $100,000 per year. She underwent a cervical epidural injection under fluoroscope and the doctor missed and injected the spinal cord (thus showing he skipped the step of using the fluoroscope and/or he used it improperly). The steroid went to her brain and rendered her a quadriplegic. Despite the doctor's vehement argument that he performed the procedure correctly, we won the Medical Review Panel and the matter resulted in a confidential settlement before trial. After the settlement, Plaintiff moved out of the nursing home which she was put in since the accident, and now has, among other things, 24-hour care at her own new home.
