Share this post

A Merrillville law firm has announced a 55-million dollar civil settlement for nearly three-hundred people who were once patients of the so-called 'Nose Doctor'M. Attorneys at Theodoros and Rooth say the settlement approved in Lake Superior Court is for malpractice claims filed against former Merrillville sinus doctor Mark Weinberger. Weinberger pleaded guilty last year to more than twenty counts of health care fraud and was sentenced to seven years in federal prison last October. Officials say Weinberger fled the U-S in 2004, and was found on a mountainside in Italy about five years later.
