Court reviews the dismissal of a medical malpractice case based on the exclusion of expert testimony

SHIRLEEN NEVELS v. JOSEPH CONTARINO, M.D. ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. November 19, 2012)

The trial court dismissed this medical malpractice claim on the defendants’ motion for summary judgment and motion to dismiss, after excluding the testimony of the plaintiff’s expert witness. Because the trial court erred in its application of the locality rule and Rule 702 of the Rules of Evidence, we reverse.
