LDM partner Cathy Trent-Vilim recently received a favorable arbitration award in a contract dispute between her insurer client and the client’s former agent. The arbitrator issued his ruling only ten days after the proceeding ending, awarding the client all of its damages.
LDM attorneys Mark Novotny and Sarah Macdissi have obtained a ruling from the Nebraska Court of Appeals affirming the dismissal of a dental malpractice lawsuit. The Plaintiff’s Complaint was dismissed on summary judgment because the Plaintiff failed to rebut the prima facie evidence that the defendant dentist had met the standard of care in his treatment of the Plaintiff. The Nebraska Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal.
