A Jefferson County jury needed less than 30 minutes to find in favor of a local internist. Plaintiff alleged that the physician was negligent in failing to anticipate the Plaintiff’s suicidal behavior. The Plaintiff jumped out of a window from a local hospital in an unsuccessful suicide attempt. James Grohmann successfully argued that the local internist met the appropriate standard of care and that Plaintiff’s behavior was unexpected such that no added precautions were indicated.
