Firm Obtains Class Certification

Decatur, Ga., October 1, 2015 – Poole Huffman filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of nearly 400 patients after their doctor emailed their names and HIV status to several media publications. This disclosure of intensely private information horrified our clients, and exposed the lackadaisical privacy precautions of the unrepentant medical practice. Recently, the court handed our clients a tremendous victory by certifying the class, and appointing us as class counsel.

The Fulton County Daily report published an article about the decision. A digital version of the article, titled “Judge Certifies Class of Patients Suing Doctor for Disclosing Their HIV status,” can be accessed via the link below. Subscribers of the hard copy version of the publication will find it in today’s issue on the front page.

This is a substantial victory for Poole Huffman, LLC and one achieved through hard work and tenacity both inside and outside of the courtroom.

Client Reviews
"Todd took over the case within weeks of trial, and crafted a trial strategy and crystal-clear message that impressed our jury. Todd skillfully presented our case and masterfully cross-examined opposing witnesses. By the time of trial, Todd understood the facts, contracts and legal theories better than anyone involved in the case, and over the one-week trial, presented it in a way the jury could understand." Dick W.
"Todd won a $400k judgement for me with less than 30 days to prepare. In another case he defended me against a bank with the result being the bank officer resigned and a third party agreed to pay me a significant settlement." Richard
"Mr. Poole works especially hard to understand the matter prior to taking action, and is able to weigh the cost of legal action versus the likelihood of collection. His focus on relationship building and being seen as an extension of the service our credit union provides, is a real benefit. I highly recommend Todd Poole." A.A.
