JOHN MARTIN (Wilmington) and a former Cranfill Sumner attorney were granted Summary Judgment in a Section 1983 case filed by a prisoner against a number of individuals, including the prison’s physician. The prisoner claimed the physician denied him appropriate and timely medical treatment for his ongoing complaints of back pain following a back injury. The federal court granted the Motion and dismissed the action, which was affirmed by the Court of Appeals.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
