On November 9th, jury selection began for the Brown v OMC, et al. jury trial in Clallam County, WA. The defense attorneys were Levi Larson and Matthew McCauley of LHA and Michele Atkins and Joseph Gardner of FAVROS. Plaintiff counsel was local attorney, Lee Tucker, and Pro Hac Vice attorney, Keith Bruno with Trial Lawyers for Justice (Nick Rowley’s firm). The trial was 4 weeks long, socially distanced, relocating back and forth between the courthouse and the nearby gymnasium with most all witnesses/experts testifying remotely on Zoom. The trial resulted in a full defense verdict and one of the first medical malpractice trials in the nation during the COVD-19 pandemic.

This webinar will feature both defense trial counsel, Beth Cooper of Physicians Insurance and Nancy Nucci of COVERYS, moderated by Noah Wick of Trial Exhibits Inc. We will discuss a brief overview of the case and their experiences and perspectives from voir dire through reaching a verdict. Please be prepared with your questions.

A Zoom link will be provided one day prior to the event. Questions - Contact Noah Wick at [email protected]
