Donald Brown and Joseph Klausing successfully defended a general surgeon in a Jefferson Circuit Court case. Plaintiff sought over 2.2 million dollars in damages and alleged that the defendant failed to rule out colon cancer. The defense noted that the general surgeon was consulted a single time to respond to acute abdominal pain, and he correctly identified that there was no surgical solution, and that ended his care. The Louisville, Kentucky jury agreed with the defense and found in his favor after a little more than an hour of deliberations.
