Georgia Man Wins $9 Million Injury Lawsuit

October 9, 2009

An Ellenwood man has been awarded more than $9 million by a DeKalb County jury after suffering permanent scarring to his genitals following treatments for erectile dysfunction.

John Henry Howard was awarded $750,000 in compensatory damages and $8.5 million in punitive damages in his suit against Boston Men’s Health Center Inc.

The Altamont Springs, Fla.-based company operates 22 clinics across the United States and Puerto Rico as Boston Medical Group.

Boston Medical contends it did nothing wrong.

Atlanta attorney Alan F. Herman represented the company and said his client has not decided if it will appeal the verdict, which was handed down Sept. 25.

The company has until Nov. 4 to appeal or file post-trial motions.
