SA Bhaskaran, a former assistant of ace filmmakers like Siddique, Jeetu Joseph and Kamal Haasan, turns independent with a medical thriller titled Mei (Truth). He has roped in Nicky Sundaram, who is pursuing acting course in New York and powerhouse performer Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead. While Aishwarya essays a medical representative, which is a character for a heroine, Nicky plays a doctor from US who comes to Chennai. Talking to DC about the film, Bhaskaran says, “Besides truth, Mei also refers to the human body.

A Florida jury has deemed an attorney with national law firm Morgan & Morgan liable for $5 million his clients lost in damages. A Sarasota jury found that Armando Lauritano, a Morgan & Morgan attorney based in Tampa, cost former clients several million dollars’ worth in damages by failing to properly file a medical malpractice claim against an obstetrics practice, nurse midwife and hospital.
