Maynard Partner Interviewed in Times Union Runners Blog

Category: Firm News — admin @ 2:46 pm

Rob Rausch, a partner in the law firm, was recently interviewed and featured in the Times Union’s Runners Blog. The Times Union website has a blog dedicated to running that occasionally interviews local runners they call “frunners” (fellow runners). After completion of the Vermont Marathon, Mr. Rausch was asked to do an interview for the Times Union Runners’ Blog.

Mr. Rausch is an avid runner, and attributes this to joining the Maynard, O’Connor, Smith & Catalinotto firm in 1997, when he was asked to be on the team for the Corporate Challenge. Since then, Mr. Rausch has been very active in the Albany County Bar Association’s Law Day Run Against Domestic Violence and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Team in Training.”

Maynard Partner Successful in Defense of Albany Medical Center

Category: Firm News — admin @ 3:19 pm

Maynard, O’Connor Partner Thomas G. Daley, successfully defended a medical malpractice lawsuit venued in Rensselaer County.  The case, the Estate of Clow v Albany Medical Center Hospital and Albany Medical College, involved an allegation that the decedent was improperly and inadequately treated and monitored for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.  The plaintiff contended that the defendants allowed a condition known as abdominal compartment syndrome to develop which caused the death of Mr. Clow. Expert medical proof was produced for the consideration of the jury that established that when abdominal compartment syndrome did develop, it was immediately detected and treated.  Further, the medical evidence established that the true cause of death was an underlying heart condition which was essentially untreatable.  The trial started on June 1, 2010 and a jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the defendants on June 11 after deliberating approximately seven hours.
