Shapira v. Christiana Care v. Houghton


Oral Argument
06/04/14 – 06/04/14


In this oral argument before the Delaware Supreme Court, Christiana Care Health Services, Inc. contended that the lower court's ruling in the medical malpractice case constitutes reversible error requiring a new trial. This is a case that arises out of a surgical procedure performed by defendant Nadiv Shapira, M.D. As a result of that procedure, John Houghton sustained injuries and incurred medical expenses of approximately $335,000. His wife, Evelyn, brought a claim for loss of consortium against Dr. Shapira, Nadiv Shapira, M.D., LLC, and CCHS. The jury returned a verdict in favor of Mr. Houghton in the amount of $3,750,000 and in favor of his wife in the amount of $650,000. The verdict apportioned liability 65% to Dr. Shapira and 35% to CCHS.


The judgment of the Superior Court was affirmed and the case was
remanded with instructions to the Superior Court to vacate the supplemental verdict. Jurisdiction was not retained
