Norwalk couple wins $58 million verdict
(05/26/11) NORWALK - A Norwalk couple has won a $58 million settlement against a doctor who delivered their newborn child.
Dominic and Cathy D'Attilo say the payout is the largest awarded by a jury in state history.
The couple says their now 8-year-old child suffered brain damage and has cerebral palsy because Dr. Richard Viscarello, of Maternal-Fetal Care, in Stamford didn't perform a C-section on time.
An attorney for the doctor says he will appeal the decision.
