Hi kids, the bunker produced a plethora of opinions this morning, but only one of them held my attention.
That's the continuing saga of former Dolphin wide receiver O.J. McDuffie and his malpractice action against famed sports doc John Uribe.
(Isn't it annoying when fellow lawyers tout how they had Uribe do their minor meniscus tear, as if by selecting this doc it somehow confers some sort of elite status onto their weekend warrior tennis injury?)
Anyhoo, Judge Genden threw out OJ's trial victory, and the 3d affirmed:
After this Court’s consideration of all of the issues presented on appeal, we conclude the complained of errors cumulatively rose to the level where they permeated the entire trial and were fundamental so as to deprive the appellee, Dr. Uribe, of a fair trial. We therefore do not find that the trial judge abused his discretion by ordering a new trial.OJ's effort to have Genden removed was denied as well.
Congrats to Wendy Lumish!
