Sexually transmitted disease law suit filed on behalf of renowned journalist

For Immediate Release

Slovak Baron Empey Murphy & Pinkney LLP Announces Sexually Transmitted Disease Lawsuit On Behalf Of Renowned Journalist

PALM SPRINGS, CA – Feb. 11, 2014 – SBEMP, LLP announces the filing of a personal injury lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of accomplished journalist Liz Crokin against Mallory Hill alleging that he knowingly infected her with a sexually transmitted disease resulting in life-threatening injuries during the couple¹s relationship from May 2012 to March 2013.

Liz Crokin has an extensive background in entertainment and political journalism in print, television and Internet media. She has covered celebrities for over a decade for various publications including the Chicago Tribune¹s Red-Eye Edition, In Touch Weekly, Us Weekly and Star. Crokin also worked in the White House and at Fox News Channel as well as appearing as a television commentator on various shows such as AXS Live, Extra and Biography Channel specials.

The complaint alleges that Crokin and Defendant Mallory Hill began an intimate relationship in May 2012. Before engaging in a sexual relationship with Crokin, it is alleged that Hill knew for more than 15 years that he was infected with genital herpes (HSV-2) and oral herpes (HSV-1). The complaint further alleges that Hill never told Crokin he was infected and even after she asked him if he was infected with any sexually-transmitted diseases he lied to her by telling her was not infected with anything.

The complaint further alleges that after experiencing initial symptoms of the viral infection, Hill told Crokin and her treating physicians that he had been tested and was not infected with any sexually-transmitted disease. Hill¹s alleged misrepresentations delayed an accurate diagnosis of Crokin¹s condition, which left undiagnosed and untreated for months, eventually caused herpes meningitis, an uncommon, but extremely serious condition. Crokin¹s infection became life-threatening when it progressed to meningoencephalitis, a viral infection of the brain itself.

According to the allegations in the complaint, Crokin has sustained disabling and permanent physical and mental injuries and has been unable to resume her professional career on a full-time basis. She is, however, currently writing a weekly column for the Chicago Sun-Times. In an attempt to spread awareness about this devastating disease Crokin recently joined the Meningitis Foundation board.

Shaun M. Murphy of SBEMP is representing Ms. Crokin in this lawsuit. Mr. Murphy is nationally-known as one of the leading trial attorneys representing plaintiffs infected with genital herpes. He has recovered more than $10,000,000 in verdicts and settlements for infected women.

For more information about this case, please contact Shaun M. Murphy at (760) 322-2275 or murphy@sbemp.com murphy@sbemp.com. For more information about these types of cases in general or to learn about SBEMP, LLP, please visit our website: www.sbemp.com
