Motion to Dismiss Won on Behalf of Physician Client

Doug Morgan and Jeanine Goodwin win pretrial dismissal of physician client

MBB+M Shareholder Doug Morgan and Senior Associate Jeanine Goodwin recently won a Motion to Dismiss on behalf of their client, a gastroenterologist, for failure to appropriately and timely serve the physician. Through extensive motion practice, Attorney Morgan and Attorney Goodwin successfully argued in Plymouth Superior Court that there was no service of process of the complaint, and (2) there was no showing of “good cause” for the failure to timely serve the physician, where plaintiff’s counsel knew the identity of the physician’s employer and instead requested the process server to leave the complaint with an attendant at a large medical center at which she merely had privileges.
