Kline & Specter won a $15 million settlement in a complex birth injury case in which a delay in delivery resulted in the baby suffering cerebral palsy. Litigating the case for the firm were Shanin Specter, Kila Baldwin and Lisa Dagostino. The defendants included a northern New Jersey hospital, a labor and delivery nurse and an obstetrician. The case was complicated by the near total charitable immunity enjoyed by New Jersey and because the obstetrician had only $1 million in insurance coverage. Said Specter:  "The settlement will ensure that this child, who suffered a severe brain injury, will get care and support he needs for the rest of his life."
