Former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes and co-counsel Mark Meliski and John Bartholomew of the Barnes Law Group recently secured a $10 million medical malpractice verdict in the State Court of Fulton County against Piedmont Hospital, represented by David Ladner and Alan Payne of Bendin Sumrall & Ladner.

According to Meliski, the jury responded to:

  • Plaintiff’s expert witnesses who were effective teachers.
  • A defense expert who was evasive on cross-examination.
  • An effective closing argument.
  • Facts favorable to the plaintiffs.
