Jury Clears Cardiologist and Radiologist of Negligence in Diagnosis and Treatment of Actor John Ritter


We previously wrote about the commencement of testimony in the wrongful death lawsuit arising out of the untimely death of actor John Ritter. Last Friday, a jury cleared a cardiologist and a radiologist of negligence in the diagnosis and treatment of actor John Ritter who died of a torn aorta in 2003. The verdict was 9-3. This means there will be no damage judgment against the doctors. Eight other medical personnel and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center previously made settlements with the family totaling $14 million. See further details here and here.
