Congratulations to KDP partner Kirk Pittard for a recent win in the Tyler Court of Appeals. The defendant in this medical malpractice case attempted to postpone a second special setting with a last minute petition for mandamus. After briefing and oral argument, the Tyler Court of Appeals denied the mandamus allowing the case to proceed against East Texas Medical Center. The style of the case is In re East Texas Medical Center, No. 12-17-00183-CV, 2017 WL 4675511 (Tex. App.—Tyler Oct. 18, 2017) (orig. proceeding) and the opinion can be found HERE.
