Maynard O'Connor participates in another successful Law Day Run

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:38 pm

On April 26th in Washington Park, ten Maynardites (and one Junior Maynardite, Baby Grace) faced the ominous weather reports to run in the Albany County Bar Association’s 5K Run/Walk Against Domestic Violence. Fortunately, the clouds parted and the sun was shining for the 6:15 start time. The purpose of this annual event is to raise money for not-for-profit organizations providing legal and financial assistance to victims of domestic violence. Maynard O’Connor was also proud to once again be among the sponsors for this event, and Attorney Kathleen Barclay served on the ACBA’s Law Day Run Committee. A great time was had by all for a very worthy cause.

Firm Successful at Trial of Malpractice Claim

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:03 pm

Following prolonged litigation, the firm was successful in obtaining a complete dismissal of all claims brought against several vascular surgeons. The plaintiff had originally asserted claims of medical malpractice and “lack of informed consent” against several members of a vascular group. Rob Rausch successfully moved to dismiss all claims of medical malpractice, and all claims against three of the four original defendants. The matter proceeded to trial against one remaining surgeon based only upon a claim of lack of informed consent. At trial, Rob demonstrated that, in contrast to the plaintiff’s assertions, he was indeed provided with extensive information regarding the surgical procedure, including its risks, benefits, and alternatives. After only one hour of deliberations, the jury unanimously issued a verdict in favor of the defendant and dismissed the case in its entirety.
