Rutherford Christie LLP

Partner David Rutherford and New York Associate Samantha Velez obtained a defense verdict on May 29, 2019 against Ohel Children’s and Family Services, a social services organization in state court in Brooklyn, New York.  The plaintiffs had alleged that their twelve-year-old daughter suffered catastrophic brain injuries when she fell down a flight of stairs because a volunteer of the organization gave her melatonin too early before bed and she passed out at the top of the stairs while going to her bedroom.  David and Samantha were able to convince the jury that the melatonin had not, in fact, caused her to pass out and fall down the flight of stairs.
