Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

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

Attorneys 2:

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

Judge(s): 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.
