Statement to State Board of Medicine is Immune from Defamation Suit.

May 5th, 2017

In Greenberg v. McGraw, 161 A.3d 976, (Pa. Super. May 5, 2017), a three judge panel of the Pennsylvania Superior Court held that an allegedly false and defamatory statement to the State Board of Medicine by a medical assistant regarding a doctor’s fitness to practice medicine where part of a quasi-judicial proceeding and therefore subject to judicial privilege.   Thus, the lower court’s grant of Defendant’s preliminary objections in the nature of a demurrer was affirmed.  Opinion by Bender, P.J.E.,

I worked with this company for an injury claim and had amazing service. I had worked with Gregg Freeburn and mostly Ryan McDaniel. Ryan was extremely responsive and very professional. He did the best work that I could have gotten out of my case and highly recommend working with him and the rest of the firm. As an 18 year old in college working with a legal case, he made it very easy for me through the hard times and everyone I had worked with were very nice and are amazing at working around my tough schedule. Great firm and people.
