Court Issues $20,000 Judgment Against Expert Witness; Neurologist Misled Jurors


— November 21, 2004

A Massachusetts General Hospital neurologist has been ordered to pay more than $20,000 in legal fees after a judge in Lawence ruled this week that he deliberately misled a jury in a malpractice case, forcing her to order a new trial.

The unusual ruling, legal analysts said, will probably send a warning to expert witnesses who stretch the truth in medical cases across the country.
