Judy Livingston won a $13,000,000 verdict from a Manhattan Supreme Court jury on behalf of the family of a 43 year old New Jersey woman who died as result of a bowel perforation caused during an operation to remove a benign polyp from her colon at NYU Langone Medical Center. As her condition worsened in the four days following the procedure, doctors failed to diagnose the injury which eventually led to sepsis and her death.
