Article summary

This week’s edition of PI & Clinical Negligence weekly highlights includes analysis of a Court of Appeal decision which found that a trial judge was entitled to reject the conclusions reached by an expert whose evidence was CPR 35 compliant, was not challenged by the evidence of any other witness and was not subject to any cross-examination.
