Medical Malpractice Summary Judgment

Gass Turek attorneys Linda Vogt Meagher and Stephen Trigg won summary judgment in early 2022 in the Eastern District of Wisconsin on behalf of their client, a psychiatrist who formerly provided services at the Milwaukee County Criminal Justice Facility. The case involved claims for alleged constitutional violations related to mental health care that was provided to the plaintiffs. Linda and Stephen were successful in arguing that no reasonable jury could find that their client had violated the plaintiffs’ rights, and that plaintiffs’ efforts to tag their client with liability failed for both factual and legal reasons. Estate of Swazyer v. Milwaukee County, No. 16-cv-1703-bhl, WL 656884 (E.D. Wis. March 4, 2022)
