$66.5M Settlement Resolves 262 Lawsuits Alleging Unnecessary Cardiology Procedures

With the announcement of a multi-million-dollar settlement last month, long-running litigation against a northwest Indiana cardiologist and his associates is seemingly drawing to a close. But the scale and specifics of the allegations against Dr. Arvind Gandhi and his colleagues at Cardiology Associates of Northwest Indiana P.C. are still difficult to discern.

Lawyers with Cohen & Malad LLP in Indianapolis and Theodoros & Rooth P.C. in Merrillville announced a settlement Nov. 10 of $66.5 million for 262 medical malpractice claims. The parties to and terms of the settlement are confidential, and the firms declined to provide further comment beyond what was contained in the initial announcement, but Indiana Lawyer verified that the settlement involves medical malpractice claims against Gandhi, his associates at CANI, and Community Hospital of Munster.

Cohen & Malad announced the filing of about 20 medical malpractice claims against Gandhi and his associates in October 2014. By that point, a whistleblower complaint had been filed in the Indiana Northern District Court, though that case had already settled without adjudication of liability.
