Update on Mississippi Med Mal Case

Remember my posts in October 2007 about the Mississippi med mal case where the court of appeals held that evidence of liability insurance was not unfairly prejudicial? The court denied the request for a rehearing in this case on January 29, 2008.

The case is styled Wells v. Jackson Healthcare for Women, P.A. It's status of the case can be checked here:

The "Case Year:" is 2006 and the "Case Seq:" is 00385.

FYI: Mississippi's Rule 411 of Evidence is substantially similar to Tennessee's Rule 411. Therefore, this case offers persuasive authority for a similar ruling in Tennessee.
