Dental Malpractice Action Bites the Dust in Scranton.

We obtained a nonsuit in a dental malpractice action. The plaintiff alleged negligence against our client, a prosthodontist, for failing to properly place dental crowns and for negligently treating posterior bite collapse. At jury selection and day one of trial, the plaintiff’s counsel sought to withdraw from representation of the plaintiff, asserting that she terminated him the day before as there was a breakdown in the relationship. A continuance of trial was sought. We opposed the continuance and moved for nonsuit on the basis that the plaintiff was not ready for trial and did not have a sufficient excuse. The court granted our request for nonsuit and dismissed the plaintiff’s claims.
