Summary: Mrs. Maria Storm had a mole removed by her family doctor but the doctor did not have the mole reviewed by a pathologist. 3 years later Mrs. Storm was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma which led to her death. The estate contended that the mole should have been tested and if it was, Mrs. Storm could have been treated. The defense contended that there was no reason to test the mole, that the location of the mole was not the primary site of the disease, and that the cancer has already metastasized at the time it was removed and no cure was possible.
