Med Mal Suit Dismissed for Want of Good Faith

ANNE GROVES, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS NEXT OF KIN OF CHARLES GROVES v. CHRISTOPHER COLBURN, M.D.
Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys:

Cyrus Lucius Booker, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Ann Groves, individually and as next of kin of Charles Groves.

Jonathan Eric Miles, Phillip Lester North, and Lauren J. Smith, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Christopher Colburn, M.D.

Judge: BENNETT

Plaintiff filed a complaint against a hospital in which she asserted claims for medical malpractice and wrongful death. She later amended her complaint to add a party and did not contemporaneously file a certificate of good faith. The trial court dismissed the second complaint with prejudice based upon the court’s determination that plaintiff failed to satisfy the requirements of Tenn. Code Ann. § 29-26-122. We affirm the trial court.
