Kinkead & Stilz is pleased to announce that Melanie S. Marrs and David A. Trevey successfully obtained Summary Judgment on behalf of a physician staffing company in Pike County. The nature of the claim against the physician staffing company sounded in respondeat superior and agency for the co-defendant physicians. Melanie and David pointed to the independent contractor agreements and lack of control of the means and methods of practice of the physicians by the staffing company. Kentucky law regarding agency and the many factors to be considered is complicated, but not impossible to overcome.
