BOSTON: The judge presiding over the Donna Harris-Lewis medical

malpractice lawsuit has ruled that PR firm Morrissey & Company, which

has been providing PR counsel for the widow of deceased Boston Celtics

star Reggie Lewis, cannot be subpoenaed for allegedly violating a gag

order in the battle between Harris-Lewis and Lewis’ chief cardiologist,

Dr. Gilbert Mudge Jr.



Mudge’s lawyer, William Dailey Jr. of Sloane & Walsh in Boston, had

demanded depositions from Morrissey & Co. president and CEO Peter

Morrissey and VP Edward Cafasso, as well as documents related to the

agency’s work on behalf of Harris-Lewis (PRWeek, September 27).



Judge Thayer Fremont-Smith also denied the defendant’s motion to impose

a gag order during the second trial.



While Morrissey & Co. had thrust Harris-Lewis into the spotlight

following the first trial the agency declined to comment on future PR

plans for Harris-Lewis.



’Our job is to help tell the truth about Reggie’s life and the tragedy

of his death, and that’s what we’ll continue to do,’ said Morrissey.
