Verdict in favor of Psychiatrist for allegedly prescribing cardiotoxic medications which caused cardiac arrest

John Langhenry successfully defended a psychiatrist who treated a patient for schizoaffective disorder as an outpatient.  The psychiatrist prescribed psychiatric medications which plaintiff alleged were cardiotoxic for a patient with known heart problems and argued that the heart condition was not properly assessed before prescribing the medications.  The defense argued that the prescriptions were appropriate and did not cause the cardiac event.
