The Evidence Presented Does Not Support The Verdict As To Plaintiff’s Claim for Medical Professional Negligence Against Defendant Based on the Jury’s Finding that Doctors White and Brown Were Negligent.

As set forth in the minutes of the Court, Plaintiff Johnson presented substantial evidence supporting her claims for medical professional negligence against the Regents of the University of California ( Regents ) based upon the professional negligence of the Regents’ employees. In fact, the jury found that defendant’s employees, Ellen White, M.D., and Phillip Brown, M.D., were negligent in their diagnosis or treatment of Plaintiff. Yet, the jury did not rule that their negligence was a substantial factor in causing harm to Plaintiff.

Plaintiff Johnson’s negligence claims against the Regents was supported by the uncontradicted testimony of Morgan Lee, M.D., the only qualified orthopaedic expert who testified at trial. Defendant did not present any expert testimony regarding the specific claims of medical negligence relating to the injuries suffered by Plaintiff, as no other orthopaedic expert testified on behalf of defendant.
