Breakfast with Med Mal Judge and Practitioners Tomorrow

Posted by Andrew J. Barovick | Jan 04, 2009 | 0 Comments

Tomorrow morning, January 6, 2009, at 8:00 a.m. at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, there will be a breakfast program on LITIGATING IN THE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE PARTS IN SUPREME COURT .  The Honorable Sheila Abdus-Salaam, one of NY County Supreme Court's Medical Malpractice Part judges, will be the guest speaker.  She will be joined by two practitioners:  plaintiff's lawyer Jeffrey Kimmel, of Salenger, Sack, Schwartz & Kimmel, LLP; and on the defense side, Caramia Hart, of Kopff, Nardelli & Dopff, LLP.

The fee is modest:  $10.00 for members; and $15.00 for non-members.  I recommend the program highly, though I won't be able to attend.  The three speakers are extremely well-qualified to discuss the workings of the Medical Malpractice Parts, and you will very likely learn something, no matter how experienced you are.

The City Bar is located at 42 West 44th Street.  The telephone number is 212-382-6600.
