Fighting for Dr. Nikita Levy’s Victims in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia
The Baltimore community was stunned this week upon learning of the apparent suicide of former Johns Hopkins Medicine gynecologist Dr. Nikita Levy. When police investigated Dr. Levy’s home, what they found was, in their own words, “extraordinary.” Dr. Levy, who had spent his entire 25-year career at Johns Hopkins, had used his position as a trusted gynecologist to secretly and illegally tape and photograph his patients.
These appalling and unacceptable actions were the worst kind of invasion of privacy. The result was severe emotional distress for Dr. Levy’s patients.
As lawyers and as concerned citizens we are left with several difficult questions. How could Dr. Levy have gotten away with these crimes for so long? Was anyone at Johns Hopkins aware of this? What steps were taken to protect against this sort of horrible violation?
Johnnie Cochran left a legacy of fighting for society’s victims, and The Cochran Firm is the inheritor of that legacy. As proud members of the Baltimore community, we stand ready to fight for the victims of Dr. Levy’s predatory behavior. You can call us at 1-800-843-3476 to arrange a free consultation.
If You’ve Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice:
Were You a Patient?
According to police, Dr. Levy saw more than 1,000 patients during his career at Johns Hopkins. That’s more than 1,000 potential victims of this unacceptable invasion of privacy.
