McAlpin Conroy Wins Motion to
Dismiss for Fraud on the Court – In a case involving claims of
serious orthopedic and neurologic injuries after an alleged
accident during a lifeboat drill, McAlpin Conroy discovered
plaintiff had failed to disclose a doctor who treated her for
some of the same injuries Plaintiff claimed were caused by the
lifeboat drill accident just weeks before the accident! After
multiple court appearances to compel Plaintiff to execute
medical authorizations, McAlpin Conroy identified this vital
piece of information buried in thousands of pages of medical
records obtained from Plaintiff’s medical providers. Armed with
a single medical record, McAlpin Conroy successfully convinced
the Court that Plaintiff had willfully concealed the doctor and
prior injury in an attempt to perpetrate a fraud on the Court.
The case was dismissed and McAlpin Conroy’s motion for costs and
attorney’s fees is currently pending.
