Discoverability of Documents in Medical Malpractice Case Reviewed


In the case of Telguercio v. Tio, No. 19-CV-3604 (C.P. Lacka. Co. July 15, 2020 Nealon, J.), Judge Terrence R. Nealon addressed a discovery dispute in a medical malpractice case regarding two (2) event reports should be produced in discovery or are protected from discovery. 

These event reports were submitted to the court for an in-camera review. 

After reviewing the documents at issue, the court found that the documents were indeed discoverable. 

In so ruling, the court reviewed the discoverability of the documents under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act as well as the Peer Review Protection Act.
