A conditionally approved, mandatory settlement class action against The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, Inc. and The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation has been approved..  The case is known as Jane Doe No. 1, et. al. v. Johns Hopkins Hospital, et al., No. 24-C-13-001041.

What is this about?
Plaintiffs in this case say that Dr. Levy, now deceased, secretly photographed and/ or video taped women, and/or subjected his patients to boundary violations or other inappropriate behavior during examinations.  While denying liability, the Defendants have agreed to enter into settlement negotiations.

Who is a class member?
If you were a patient or treated by Dr. Levy while he was employed by Johns Hopkins  between April 26, 1988 and February 8, 2013 you are a member of a mandatory class action lawsuit. A mandatory settlement class action means that all former patients of Dr. Levy are members of this class action lawsuit. Class members must remain members of the class at this time and cannot sue on their own.

What are my rights?
A potential settlement is being negotiated.  However, there is no guarantee that there will be a settlement. The attorneys on the Court-approved Steering Committee will represent you during the settlement negotiations with Johns Hopkins.  If you think you are a class member, you must register to receive any money if a settlement is reached, which may take some time. If a settlement is not reached, you would then be free to file a lawsuit on your own at your own expense.

What do I need to do?
If you believe you are a class member, you must register to receive any money if a settlement is reached, which may take some time.    To register, go to: www.DrLevyClassAction.com, or call (855) 731-7491.

The Court's conditional approval does not guarantee that any settlement Class Member will receive any money. In the event the settlement negotiations result in a settlement, the Court will provide notice of the settlement's terms and other important details.  If a settlement is reached all claims against The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, Inc., The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation, and any other entity affiliated with Johns Hopkins will be resolved. 

However, if the negotiations do not produce a settlement, the Court will provide notice regarding future proceedings and how to protect any rights you may have.
If you have questions concerning this lawsuit or how it affects your rights and potential recovery of monetary damages, please call (855) 731-7491, or visit www.DrLevyClassAction.com.  You also may send an email to [email protected]
