After a two-week trial and about 12 hours of deliberations, a Fulton County jury returned a defense verdict in what lawyers on both sides described as a tough, emotionally charged medical malpractice case in which the husband of a woman left severely brain damaged during a surgical procedure sought at least $15 million in damages.

“There have been a number of substantial plaintiffs’ verdicts over the past few years, and I’ve heard it said that, when somebody goes into a hospital and comes out with substantial injuries, it’s going to cost millions,” said lead defense lawyer R. Page Powell. “This verdict proves that, despite the underlying tragic outcome this plaintiff suffered, a jury can still focus on the facts and details of the case, and decide on the evidence.”
