Connecticut Law Tribune

David Poppick, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment, Litigation, and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the firm's Stamford and New York offices, was quoted in an article titled "Jury Rejects Hospital Worker's Free Speech Claim."

Following is an excerpt:

A jury in Bridgeport recently decided that Greenwich Hospital did not violate a former phlebotomist's free speech rights after she reported that she had found contaminated vials in the hospital. ?...

According to the lawyer representing Greenwich Hospital, David Poppick, the FBI focused on whether the issue went beyond Greenwich Hospital and originated with the vial manufacturer. ?...

In the end, "nothing harmful or pathogenic was contained in the vials," Poppick said. He said the water was likely residue from a centrifuge that spins the vials to separate the blood so it can be analyzed. "No other definitive conclusion was reached other than that one theory," said Poppick.
