Dr. Bahram Zamanian
A New Orleans cardiologist has been awarded $6
million as a result of a jury trial in his case alleging
damages arising out of a bad faith peer review. Mr.
Marc Winsberg, attorney for Dr. Bahram Zamanian,
reports that his client's win is the first ever in state
court in Louisiana, and one of the very few victories
in the United States for a plaintiff physician alleging
injury resulting from sham peer review.
During the trial, the judge dismissed all but defamation. Thus, only defamation went to the jury.
