The following blog entry is written from a defendant’s position as trial approaches. Reviewing this kind of briefing should help potential plaintiffs and clients better understand how parties in personal injury cases present such issues to the court.
It is worth noting that situations similar to those described in this medical malpractice case could just as easily occur at any of the healthcare facilities in the area, such as Kaiser Permanente, UC Davis Medical Center, Mercy, or Sutter.
(Please also note: the names and locations of all parties have been changed to protect the confidentiality of the participants in this wrongful death case and its proceedings.)
Defendant John Lee, M.D.’s Opposition to Motion for New Trial (Supplemental); Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support Thereof
Counsel for Plaintiffs served his Notice of Intention to Move for New Trial, which included reference to “The motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict,” but which included no Memorandum of Points and Authorities, and no citations whatsoever to any testimony from the trial.
Because of the rapidly approaching March date for hearing on Plaintiffs’ motions for JNOV and new trial, counsel for Defendant filed an opposition to both motions, based on information available at that time and arguments by Plaintiffs suggested in the Notice of Motion. For more information you are welcome to contact Sacramento personal injury lawyer, Moseley Collins.
More recently, Plaintiffs served their supporting documents on both motions.To the extent that additional response is warranted, this Supplemental Opposition will address those supporting documents. (See Part 2 of 8.)
