Judge Orders Separate Trials Over Objection from Attorneys for the Children, Prefers Individual Trial To Best Understand the Case
ANAHEIM, CA – Judge Takes Dentists Side, Denies Joint Trial on Dental Fraud. Lawyers representing over 160 children injured at Children’s Dental Group in Anaheim, California appeared in Orange County Superior Court on Friday. Lawyers for the children argued for a consolidated first trial where four children would be presented to one jury. A consolidated first trial, lawyers argued, is appropriate because of common issues of law and fact that caused injury to all of the children. The Judge expressed concern that a joint trial would not produce a most pristine case capable of providing a clear understanding of the issues involved. The Judge made clear that she would reconsider the notion of a joint trial once the first trial gives us a good grasp of the common issues of law and fact existing in the case. The lawyers for the Children fired back, arguing that the court should revisit the issue once more discovery is completed. Ultimately, Judge Sanders ordered individual trials to take place in succession, stretching out to late 2020 and beyond, subject to a revisit on the joint trial request after the first individual trial concludes.
The community of children hurt at Children’s Dental Group continue to grow up without needed dental treatment such as spacers, implants, facial reconstruction, just to name a few of the long list of expensive orthodontic care for which they cannot afford. Lawyers for the children remain confident in their ability to present successfully the allegations of fraud in the setting of an individual trial. The lawyers have vowed to redouble their efforts to see that justice is served. Judge Takes Dentists Side, Denies Joint Trial on Dental Fraud.
