How To Register for Upcoming Telephone CLE Seminar on the Barrick v. Holy Spirit Decision

As previously reported here, on Sept. 16th, the state Superior Court issued a decision in Barrick v. Holy Spirit Hospital, et al. regarding the disclosure of medical records. In a 15-page opinion written by Judge Olson, the court held that either side is allowed discovery of written communications/correspondence to his/her expert witness. This applies to both plaintiffs or defendants. In this case, the defense was seeking the plaintiff lawyer’s communications to the plaintiff expert and it was ordered disclosed.

The Pennsylvania Association for Justice is holding a one-hour, one CLE credit, phone seminar on Oct. 19, 2010 from Noon to 1 p.m. to address the implications of this decision. I am participating as a presenter, presumably based upon the fact that I participated in the matter as the proponent of the amicus curiae position of the Pennsylvania Defense Institute.
