On 24 May 2017 the Poznań Court of Appeal upheld a lower instance court judgement finally confirming the acquittal of gynaecologists accused in the high profile case of the death of a patient and her unborn children in a Poznań-based maternity hospital. During the trial Prof. Drews was represented by SMM Legal partners Mr. Przemysław Maciak and Mr. Krzysztof Urbańczak.
The court explicitly declared that there was no evidence of the gynaecologists’ fault, and emphasized that they had engaged in no medical misconduct whatsoever.
The case, attentively followed by the media, has been pending before courts for years. The judgement issued on 24 May is final.
