Patients File Objection to $190 Hopkins Settlement

Posted:
BALTIMORE (AP)- A proposed settlement between Johns Hopkins hospital and 8,000 former patients of a gynecologist who secretly recorded exams is being challenged, with some women saying lawyers could get too much of the $190 million deal.

Twenty-five of those former patients filed an objection to the settlement last week, saying the proposed legal fees of up to 35 percent are too high. The objection also calls into question how each of the former patients will be evaluated to determine the amount of money she will receive.

Hopkins agreed in July to pay $190 million to former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy, who was fired from a Hopkins-affiliated community clinic in February 2013 for recording photographs and videos of his patients using a camera pen. Levy later committed suicide.
