Congratulations on the win. Do you think performing ECT is now a violation of a doctor's standard of care in light of the manufacturers' new warnings?

If the doctor does not warn the patient of the foreseeable risk of damage to the brain, yes. A failure to warn of a procedure's risks is a failure of informed consent, which is a breach of the standard of care.
