Summary

A California state court jury rejected a woman’s medical malpractice lawsuit claiming her physician was negligent for treating her acne with a powerful antibiotic that caused a severe allergic reaction which left her with scarring on over 30 percent of her body.

The 12-member jury deliberated for just over a full day following an eight-day trial before deciding 9-3 to reject plaintiff Jenny Hyoung’s lawsuit against her family physician Dr. Kyoung Yoo. While in college in 2011 Hyoung developed a life-threatening condition called Stevens Johnson syndrome, which causes dangerous blistering of the skin, after taking the drug Bactrim. Bactrim also known as Septra, is often used to treat serious infections like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA.
