A medical malpractice suit levied against corporate entities under the Cleveland Clinic umbrella in the Southern District of Florida has ended favorably for the international health institution.

On April 23, a federal jury returned a verdict finding defendant Cleveland Clinic Florida had not been negligent in its August 2015 treatment of plaintiff Karina Cros Rivas, who had come to the medical care provider complaining of abdominal pain. Shortly afterward on April 29, U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro granted a motion for directed verdict entered for the other defendant, Cleveland Clinic Hospital, which contended the plaintiff had failed to present evidence on which a reasonable jury could find the defendant liable for her bodily injury, scarring and other ailments.
