Camargo v. John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, 2014 Cal.App. Unpub. LEXIS 5946

In a wrongful death action arising from care of a patient suffering from a devastating case of flesh-eating bacteria, the trial court entered judgment for more than $4,699,000 against a hospital and other defendants.  Representing the hospital on appeal, Mr. Poster obtained a reversal with directions to reduce the judgment to conform to statutory limitations on judgments against health care providers and on apportionment of fault.  On remand, the trial court reduced the judgment $175,000.
