The unanimous Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently upheld a $600,000 verdict in the class action case of Liss & Marion, P.C. vs. Recordex. The court agreed that Recordex violated the Medical Records Act by overcharging lawyers who obtained copies of certain types of medical records on behalf of their clients.
Liss argued in the case that Recordex “ripped off” consumers who needed to get their medical records. The lawsuit was initially filed in 2003 and took seven years of litigation and appeals before the firm could claim its victory.
