NJ Superior Court dismisses emotional distress suit resulting from "inhumane" deposition.


September 25, 2007 at 12:53:36 PM

The plaintiffs in an underlying wrongful death medical malpractice claim were questioned at their deposition as to whether they were involved in the baby's death -- ostensibly because the baby's autopsy revealed a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage a common sign of shaken baby syndrome. They allege that these questions caused them emotional distress and they commenced a lawsuit against the defense attorney who asked the questions. The trial court dismissed the suit on the grounds that the questions were directly related to the litigation.
