Court Reviews Whether Appellant Proved that her Expert was Familiar with the Standard of Care in a Community Similar to that of the Defendant

TINA JOHNSON, ET AL. v. DAVID J. RICHARDSON, M.D. (Tenn. Ct. App. August 13, 2010)

This is a medical malpractice case. Plaintiff/Appellant appeals from the trial court's disqualification of her expert witness and grant of the Defendant/Appellee's motion for directed verdict. Finding that the Appellant failed to show that her expert was familiar with the standard of care in a community similar to the defendant's community, we affirm the decision of the trial court.
