New Tennessee Medical Malpractice Case

The Tennessee Court of Appeals just issued its decision in Groves v. Colburn, No. M2012-01834-COA-R3-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Jul. 30, 2013).  The summary reads as follows:
Plaintiff filed a complaint against a hospital in which she asserted claims for medical malpractice and wrongful death. She later amended her complaint to add a party and did not contemporaneously file a certificate of good faith. The trial court dismissed the second complaint with prejudice based upon the court’s determination that plaintiff failed to satisfy the requirements of Tenn. Code Ann. § 29-26-122. We affirm the trial court.
