Washtenaw Circuit Court / 6th Circuit Court of Appeals
Plaintiff alleged clients misread a mammogram, resulting in delay in diagnosing breast cancer. We argued that Plaintiff failed to allege proximate cause and the trial court granted our Motion for Summary Disposition. Plaintiff appealed and the Court of Appeals issued an unpublished opinion upholding the trial courts dismissal of our clients. The Court of Appeals stated that Plaintiff’s Affidavit of Merit is insufficient to show proximate cause because it did not precisely describe the manner in which breach, if standard, was the proximate cause of Plaintiff’s injury.
