Court restores love triangle lawsuit in North Carolina
That little indiscretion can become a very costly piece of trim for the Doc. I bet he is not smiling now.
A jilted husband can proceed with a lawsuit against a doctor who had sex with the man’s wife, a North Carolina appeals court ruled Tuesday.
Mark Malecek initially sued Dr. Derek Williams in 2015 after discovering Williams’ affair with Malecek’s wife, Amber. Malecek’s lawsuit accused the doctor of “alienation of affection and criminal conversation” and sought at least $100,000 in damages.
Malecek alleged that Dr. Williams persuaded Amber to cheat on him despite knowing that she was married. At the time of their affair, Amber Malecek worked as a nurse at Wake Forest Baptist Health, where Dr. Williams is a pediatric cardiologist.
It appears that the cardiologist didn’t have a heart when it came to playing twiddle-winks with some other guys wife.
I don’t think Malecek sued the doc for quiet enough. A couple of years back, a Wake County judge awarded $30 million to the former wife of a Raleigh business owner. The ex-wife had sued the businessman’s current spouse.
Mark buddy; GO BIG OR GO HOME. 100 G’s to some doctors is just a small bet on the 18th hole, especially a cardiologist.
