ACCORDING TO CHRISTIAN NOLAN OF THE CT LAW TRIBUNE:
"State grievance officials have escaped a lawsuit brought by a family accusing their former lawyers of collecting $4.3 million more in legal fees than they were entitled to in connection with a high-profile medical-malpractice settlement.
In 2011, a jury awarded $58.6 million to Cathy and Domenic D'Attilo and their son, Danny, for permanent brain injuries he sustained during his birth at Stamford Hospital.
The amount was a medical-malpractice record in Connecticut. But rather than embark on years of appeals, the family, through their lawyers, opted to settle with the hospital for $25 million..."
1. Attorney General George Jepsen fought against the rights of the people to have attorneys held to account;
2. Statewide Grievance has simply flipped off procedures in place to hold attorneys to account.
