First Circuit Affirms Dismissal of 93A Claim for Lack of Plausible Causation Allegation

The First Circuit has affirmed the dismissal of 93A claims against doctors, a clinic and the publisher of a case report the doctors wrote. Plaintiffs alleged that the case report fraudulently misstated the facts of a childbirth, that the case report was introduced as evidence in prior medical practice suits plaintiff had brought and that the case report caused them to lose those malpractice cases. The First Circuit held the district court properly dismissed because plaintiffs failed to allege a plausible theory of causation.
