Parsippany Partner Christopher Martin and Associate Seth Garrod obtained summary judgment in a dental malpractice case.   In an unusual course of events, during the trial of the case before a jury,  plaintiff’s counsel sought to amend his complaint, but the court denied his request.  The plaintiff chose not to appeal, but instead filed a new Complaint with new counts.  In ruling on the firm’s motion for summary judgment,  the court invoked the “entire controversy” doctrine, this finding for the defendant.
