Melissa Brown of MOODK’s New Jersey Office represented a medical entity and six medical and mental health providers in a wrongful death action arising from care and treatment of an inmate.  Plaintiff claimed that the medical negligence and deliberate indifference of defendant medical providers resulted in the decedent’s suicide.  Following years of discovery, Melissa was successful in obtaining summary judgment on behalf of all the medical entities and providers she represented. Thereafter, Plaintiff appealed the ruling of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey to the Third Circuit.  Melissa briefed the matter before the Third Circuit outlining the appropriateness of the District Court’s ruling and the deficiencies in Plaintiff’s case.  The Third Circuit agreed and affirmed the dismissal.
