Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death & Bankruptcy

The Middle Section of the Tennessee Court of Appeals just issued its opinion in Gordon ex rel. Gordon v. Draughn, No. M2008-02224-COA-R10-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. June 16, 2009).

The opinion offers an excellent analysis of appellate court jurisdiction during an extraordinary appeal, judicial estoppel, and related civil procedure matters, among other things. Specifically, it addresses the issue of a parent's standing to bring a claim for the wrongful death of his or her child due to medical malpractice after the parent has filed for bankruptcy.
