EMPLOYMENT A resident in obstetrics and gynecology who alleged wrongful termination was awarded $2.5 million by a Connecticut jury on April 9. Linda Fagan, a fourth-year resident at the Stamford Hospital, was fired in January 1996, just five months before her residency would have been completed. She contended that her termination was unjustified and that it ended her medical career. She claimed that, after complaining that the residency program lacked certain educational opportunities and had other flaws, she was repeatedly disciplined for conduct without any investigation or factual support. The hospital countered that her repeated failings evidenced an unsafe practitioner, and that she was therefore properly terminated. Fagan v. The Stamford Hospital, No. CV-96-0149908S (Fairfield, Conn., Super. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEY: Neal L. Moskow, Ury & Moskow, Fairfield, Conn. DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Robert Mitchell, Pullman & Comely, Stamford, Conn. Source: National Jury Verdict Reporter
