Doctor’s Apparent Suicide Follows Looming Malpractice Trial

The body of Easton physician Dr. Michael Gordon Judd was found at his home at about 8:15 am on Wednesday, July 30, 2014. The State Medical Examiner will determine a cause of death and the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office believes there was no foul play and is an apparent suicide from a shotgun.

A claim to the Health Care Alternative Dispute Resolution Office was made by James and Amanda Tyler against Dr. Judd for malpractice on Oct. 6, 2012.

The couple laid out their cause of action calling for damages suffered as a result of a botched sterilization performed by Dr. Judd on Mrs. Tyler.
