The daughter of a recently deceased woman filed a motion to dismiss without prejudice in regards to each defendant in a lawsuit against a drug company that she claimed manufactured an unsafe liquid that was pumped into her mother during dialysis.
The plaintiff filed the motion to dismiss without prejudice on Nov. 15 through attorney Thomas Q. Keefe Jr. of Keefe & Keefe in Belleville, dismissing all defendants with leave to reinstate.
Madison County Circuit Judge William Mudge granted the motion, dismissing all defendants without prejudice on Dec. 5.
According to the complaint filed Sept. 19, Christina Marchetti claims her mother, Rebecca Hubbard, was receiving a dialysis treatment when an unsafe dialysate was used, resulting in her death.
Defendant Mary Martin, who administered the dialysis treatment, was blamed for contributing to Hubbard’s death for negligently allowing an unsafe dialysate to be administered.
Defendant Renal Treatment Centers, improperly named as DaVita RX, LLC, was blamed for failing to inform its purchase that the dialysate was defective.
William S. Thomas of Pitzer Snodgrass in St. Louis represents the defendants.
