Trial Court Ruling Allowing Plaintiff to File an Amended Certificate of Good Faith and Denying Defense Motion to Dismiss Upheld on Appeal

The Court of Appeals recently released its opinion in Stovall v. UHS of Lakeside, LLC, No. W2013-01504-COA-R9-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Apr. 22, 2014).  The summary of the opinion states as follows:
Appellant medical providers appeal the trial court’s denial of their motions to dismiss a medical malpractice complaint for failure to strictly comply with Tennessee Code Annotated Section 29-26-122(d)(4). Because we conclude that the trial court had good cause to grant an extension, within which to file a certificate of good faith, we affirm the decision of the trial court.
