Garfunkel Wild Defeats Defamation, Fraud, Contract and Tortious Interference Claims Against Peconic Bay Medical Center

October 13, 2021


Garfunkel Wild won summary judgment dismissal of a multi-million dollar suit filed against Peconic Bay Medical Center based on its filing of a report with the National Practitioner Data Bank that a physician resigned while under investigation.    After the First Department Appellate Division upheld dismissal of defamation and other claims, the New York County Supreme Court granted dismissal of plaintiff’s remaining claims for breach of contract, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, promissory estoppel and tortious interference.

The Garfunkel Wild Litigation team was led by Partner/Director Len Rosenberg, joined by Partner Lauren Levine and Associate Gillian Barkins.
