Lawsuit between former medical colleagues settled

Times staff writer

BROOKSVILLE — A Spring Hill surgeon and his wife must pay $6,000 to the former medical director for radiology at Oak Hill Hospital as part of a settlement approved Aug. 22.

The agreement resolves a lawsuit filed this year by Dr. Dilip Mehta, who now practices at Excel Imaging in New Port Richey, against former Oak Hill colleagues Dr. Arthur Flatau and his wife, Karyn.

Mehta was cleared by a jury last year in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Karyn Flatau. In the civil matter, he sought more than $15,000 in damages for malicious prosecution, tortuous interference and defamation.

The latter charge stemmed from a comment Karyn Flatau made in a St. Petersburg Times article.
