Amicus Brief on Expert Discovery Issue Posted on JDSupra.com

I recently noted here that, at the request of the Pennsylvania Defense Institute, I authored an amicus curiae brief on behalf of a defendant in the case of Barrick v. Holy Spirit Hospital which is now up before the Pennsylvania Superior Court.

The appeal involves the expert discovery issue of whether a plaintiff's treating doctor/medical expert witness for trial should be required to produce letters and e-mails the doctor received from the plaintiff's attorney dealing, in part, with how the expert should frame his opinion.

The amicus brief has been filed of record with the Superior Court and we await an argument date. If you are interested and wish to review the brief, you may scroll down the right hand column of this blog and click on "Barrick v. Holy Spirit Hospital" in the JDSupra.com box.
