Sims obtains $1.5 million judgment for local anesthesiologist in breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit.

Following a multi-day bench trial in Columbia, Tennessee, the Circuit Court for Maury County ruled that the former chief manager of a local anesthesia group breached his fiduciary duty by procuring three provider contracts for himself. The court awarded Scott’s client, a member of the group, compensatory damages and attorneys fees in the amount of $1.5 million. No appeal was taken from the judgment.
