Doctor Found Liable For Failing To Help Suicidal Patient
Koskoff said the Morrin lawsuit touched on a lot of issues that have been in the public's mind since the Sandy Hook tragedy in December 2012.
"It's everything that people have been talking about in the past year—mental health, firearms, lapses in mental health treatment," said Kosoff. "It's very telling that the jury was able to look at this as seriously as a failure to diagnose a heart attack or cancer. There's a growing respect for the legitimacy of mental illness and the need for treatment."•
