Medical Malpractice Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC40716 - Scott v. CCMC Faculty Practice Plan, Inc. (Medical malpractice; "The plaintiff, Brandon Scott, appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered following a jury trial, in favor of the defendants, Paul Kanev, a neurosurgeon, and CCMC Faculty Practice Plan, Inc. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the trial court (1) improperly permitted the defendants to introduce evidence that the plaintiff's pain substantially resolved due to a syrinx that had developed within his spinal cord to establish a reduction in damages (syrinx evidence), and (2) erred when it failed to instruct the jury with respect to such evidence. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
