Settlements checks to be mailed in Dr. Nikita Levy case

After several years of legal work, settlement checks are set to be mailed to more than 8,000 former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy, the Johns Hopkins gynecologist accused of secretly photographing and filming women during pelvic exams.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Sylvester B. Cox has approved the final allocation plan, said retired Maryland Court of Appeals Judge Irma S. Raker, who served as claims adjudicator in the class-action case. She said the checks — which range from $1,876.77 to $27,934.93 — should be mailed by June 2.

"The goal is to get the award into the hands of the claimants as soon as reasonably possible and legally possible," Raker said.
