John Doe v. Radiology Group, State Court of DeKalb County, Georgia. Lesions bordering the spine of a 56-year-old man were diagnosed by a radiologist as cysts rather than developing cancer. The patient died two weeks after a specially set trial was to begin. The patient’s deteriorating health was a factor in his family’s decision to settle the case on the eve of trial. His lawyers fully expected a bigger verdict given the evidence, but his widow wanted him to have closure prior to his death.
