Action News reporter/anchor Lisa Thomas-Laury did not sway a Montgomery County jury last week in her lawsuit against a doctor and Lankenau Hospital, which she had accused of failing to diagnose her rare nerve disorder.

The finding, announced Thursday (9/2), was for the defendants.

Thomas-Laury, 56, and her husband, William, filed the medical-malpractice suit against Dr. Clifford Pemberton and the hospital nearly four years ago. The Mayo Clinic diagnosed and treated her for POEMS, the complaint said.

She was out of work for 38 months before she returned to 6ABC, wearing leg braces, in January 2007.
