Lewis Thomason continued in its perfect record in medical malpractice jury trials with another favorable jury verdict. Kim Johnson led the trial team in defense of their surgeon client, assisted by Marcy Magee and Natalie Bursi. The trial lasted four days with the jury deliberating for a little more than two hours before returning a verdict for the defense.
