Duluth Doctor Appeals Judge’s Decision

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A Duluth neurologist has filed an appeal after a judge dismissed his lawsuit that claimed he was defamed by a patient’s son.

Dr. David McKee alleged in his lawsuit that Dennis Laurion of Duluth made false statements about McKee’s treatment of Laurion’s father to the American Academy of Neurology, St. Luke’s Hospital, colleagues and others.

McKee tells the Duluth News Tribune that he suspects Laurion made over 100 adverse postings on the Internet when he found out the judge dismissed the lawsuit and appealing is the only way to get him to curb his activities.

Laurion says he hasn’t posted anything about McKee since the lawsuit was filed last June.
The appellate court is expected to have a hearing in the fall or later this year.
