A six-person jury in a court that normally hears cases worth $25,000 or less has rejected $23 million in claims against 50 insurance companies from a doctor who claimed to own a professional corporation that performed MRIs for no-fault accident victims. Mark W. Smith, who represented the professional corporation, the ownership of which was at the heart of the case, said in an interview that the verdict would be appealed because the trial judge misapplied a pivotal Court of Appeals case.
