JHU Litigation

Apr 22, 2015

Lawsuits filed against Johns Hopkins Medicine have made headlines and sparked debates. A look at three cases: A suit brought by the Orioles' minor-league outfielder Nolan Reimold against Johns Hopkins Hospital for negligent medical care; a $1 billion damage suit for Hopkins' involvement in medical experiments on human subjects in Guatemala in the 1940s and 1950s; and the $190 million settlement between Johns Hopkins Medicine and patients of Dr. Nikita Levy, the gynecologist who secretly photographed women during exams.

In the suit, Orioles' outfielder Nolan Reimold alleges that his Hopkins surgeon cleared him to play before he was fully healed, resulting in the need for additional surgery.
