18 Patients Receive Settlements in Las Vegas Hep C Case


LAS VEGAS— KLAS Las Vegas Now is reporting that Judge Allan Earl ruled 18 people who contracted hepatitis C from the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada can receive an undisclosed settlement in their cases against Dr. Dipak Desai. Details of the settlement and the Nevada Mutual Insurance Company are private.

Desai’s attorneys disagreed with the motion saying Desai was never made aware of any good faith settlements between the insurance company and the patients and the ruling will open up the additional lawsuits.
