Barnes v. Connecticut Podiatry Group
The plaintiff brought this action forward seeking damages from the defendant for medical malpractice causing partial amputation of the plaintiff’s feet. The plaintiff identified Dr. Gorman, an expert on standard of care and causation, as their expert witness. The plaintiff later filed an amended expert witness disclosure. The trial court denied the defendant’s motion to preclude the amended disclosure. The court did however preclude the plaintiff from disclosing any additional experts after that point. The plaintiff later filed a motion for reargument and requested that the trial court reconsider precluding the plaintiff from bringing forward any new witnesses. The plaintiff then filed another expert witness disclosure identifying an additional witness. The court denied that plaintiff’s motions, sustaining the court’s prior order precluding the plaintiff from bringing forward any additional expert witnesses. The trial court additionally precluded the plaintiff from using expert testimony offered by Dr. Gorman. The court subsequently granted summary judgment in favor of the defendant.
