Abbey Furlong and Maegan Gorham successfully defended a North Iowa county hospital in an employment dispute arising out of the circumstances of a physician’s separation from the hospital. The Plaintiff claimed he was wrongfully terminated and that the hospital interfered with his employment contract with another hospital entity, requesting an award in excess of $8.8 million. The hospital presented evidence that its actions were appropriate and that it was the Plaintiff’s own conduct that led to his separation. After an 11-day jury trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the hospital, finding it was not liable for any of Plaintiff’s claims against it.
