Neil Dymott Attorneys "SLAPP" Plaintiff out of Court

Neil Dymott attorneys recently represented a physician who was sued for malpractice, fraud and violation of privacy rights. The plaintiff claimed he was a patient of the physician, and the physician was liable when medical information was disclosed in a lawsuit. Shareholder Hugh McCabe filed a special motion to strike and argued the plaintiff's claims were a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP) and were privileged. The court agreed. Not only was the case dismissed, but the court also awarded the physician attorney's fees against the plaintiff.


Hugh McCabe is a shareholder in our San Diego office. He concentrates his practice on employment law, business litigation and trucking and transportation matters. For further information, Mr. McCabe can be reached at (619) 238-1712 or hmccabe@neildymott.com
