Defense Verdict in Obstetrical Malpractice Trial Affirmed by Georgia Court of Appeals
The Georgia Court of Appeals affirmed a defense verdict in a brain damaged baby case handled by Tom Carlock and Eric Frisch. The case was tried to a defense verdict after more than five weeks of testimony. On appeal, the issues included whether the trial court properly limited the amount of time the injury child was present in the courtroom. In a case of first impression in Georgia, the Court held that the trial court has the discretion to limit a plaintiff’s presence in the courtroom in cases involving severe neurological injuries.
