Thorpe Shwer Wins Summary Judgment on Liability and Damages for Medical Billing Client

Thorpe Shwer attorney Sara Witthoft recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of a medical billing client in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. The dispute arose out of a breach of an agreement Thorpe Shwer’s client had with medical providers to process and bill out-of-network insurance claims. The District Court granted summary judgment in favor of Thorpe Shwer’s client on liability on its breach-of-contract claim and recently entered summary judgment on contract damages, awarding the client more than $800,000 in principal damages and late fees, plus accrued interest. The Court also determined that the client is entitled to an award of its reasonable attorney fees. Sara was assisted by paralegal Carmen Boubek.
