$2M lawsuit against “Patient Zero” discontinued
A lawsuit filed against the New Rochelle lawyer at the center of the coronavirus outbreak has been dropped.
Last July, Lawrence Garbuz, New York’s first known COVID-19 case - also known as “Patient Zero,” was accused of stealing nearly $2 million from an estate in which he was a co-trustee.
The lawsuit also named his wife, a law partner of their firm. Now, court records show the lawsuit has been discontinued.
An attorney for Garbuz confirmed that information, but had no other comment.
