Doctor Has No Patience for Patient's Medical Malpractice Claim

In an article for the June/July 2018 issue of the Louisiana Bar Journal, Robert David discussed a case from the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeal that ruled on a doctor's claims of malicious prosecution and defamation. 

In Jeansonne v. Bonano, 2017-0828 (La. App. 1 Cir. 1/23/18), 241 So. 3d 1027, a patient's husband filed a medical malpractice claim against the doctor whose treatment resulted in his wife's untimely death. After the medical review panel rendered an opinion in favor of the doctor, the doctor filed claims of malicious prosecution and defamation against the husband. The husband responded with exceptions of no cause of action and prescription.
