Historic Malpractice Verdict
Prescription Drugs Caused Man’s Death
Verdict in Harris County against Rogue Clinic and Pill Mill Doctor. Rogue doctor wrote prescriptions from a cigar bar in Houston to be passed out to his clinics around the state. The doctor never went to the clinics and intended that the narcotics be passed out to addicts for recreational purposes. My client, an innocent patient who was legitimately seeking pain medicine for his back stopped by the Family Medical Clinic, and was seen by a man he thought was a doctor. He took the medications as prescribed, but had preexisting conditions which a doctor would have known would kill the man if he took the prescriptions. The autopsy showed he took a normal dose, and this killed him. The jury found for the family in one of the larger verdicts in a medical malpractice case in Harris County. We are now trying to collect the judgment against the Rogue Dr. Maurice Conte who is said to have millions of dollars in case stashed away from his illegal drug prescription activities.
