PHILADELPHIA – Irreconcilable differences have caused a plaintiff’s attorney to exit a lawsuit filed against Temple University, its hospital and health care system.

Min-Sun Kim, on behalf of fellow counsel Duane L. Lassiter and her firm Lassiter & Associates, filed a motion to withdraw appearance on June 7, pointing to “irreconcilable differences” between herself and plaintiff Kathleen Woodruff. Kim stated her withdrawal would not prejudice Woodruff’s case and she had adequate time to secure the services of new counsel.

On Sept. 13, 2013, Woodruff was in the Boyer Pavilion Building on the campus of Temple University Hospital at 3509 North Broad Street and walking in the hallway leading from the elevator to the first floor entrance/exit, when she was caused to slip and fall via an object placed on the floor, the lawsuit alleges.

Woodruff alleged the hallway was allowed to remain in a dangerous condition for an extended period of time, and this negligence led to her accident

Woodruff allegedly suffered full-body injuries, including ones to her hip, spine, knee, shoulder, myalgia and myofascitis.

The plaintiff is seeking, individually, jointly and severally, not in excess of $50,000 in this case.

The defendants are represented by Douglas K. Jenkins and Joe H. Tucker Jr. of the Tucker Law Group, also in Philadelphia.
