Medical Malpractice: New Opinion on the Locality Rule Post-Shipley

Today, the Tennessee Court of Appeals, Eastern Section, issued its opinion in Meares v. Traylor, No. E2011-02187-COA-R3-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Jul. 27, 2012).  
Plaintiffs charged defendant with medical malpractice. The case was tried before a jury, resulting in a judgment for the defendant. An out-of-state medical doctor testified on behalf of the defendant, over the objection of plaintiffs. Plaintiffs have appealed to this Court, insisting that it was reversible error for the Trial Court to allow that expert to testify in violation of the "Locality Rule". On appeal, we affirm the Judgment of the Trial Court.
Here's a link to the opinion:
