After a lengthy battle in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Chuck and Gena Norris abandoned their claims against long-time BSCR client, Bracco Diagnostics Inc. (Bracco). Mr. and Mrs. Norris had been vocal in the media, claiming Gena had suffered debilitating injuries as a result of her exposure to gadolinium based contrast agents manufactured by Bracco. Despite their oft-repeated public claims that they would never abandon their case, the opposite became true when the Court entered their dismissal with prejudice on January 15, 2020.
The decision to dismiss the lawsuit was entirely that of Mr. and Mrs. Norris and their attorneys. No settlement payment was made and each party paid their own costs. In obtaining a complete dismissal of the lawsuit, the Baker Sterchi team led by co-national counsel Tom Sterchi and Paul Penticuff achieved something heretofore unimaginable in any venue—they defeated Chuck Norris.
