A New York judge has taken to task some well-known personal injury attorneys for what she called a "nonsensical and frivolous" bid to recoup the costs of an unsuccessful medical malpractice action. Victoria Kremen underwent a double mastectomy after allegedly being misdiagnosed with breast cancer. She accused Morelli Ratner and the now-defunct Schapiro & Reich of mishandling the action against her doctors. Now, Morelli Ratner is pressing a counterclaim against Kremen to recoup $6,000 the lawyers spent advancing her case.
