Wondering what oral arguments will be heard?? Victor Villarreal, District 19 Director for the Texas Young Lawyers Association and one of the organizers indicates:
Today, the Texas Supreme Court will hear Raul Ernesto Loaisiga, M.D. v. Guadalupe Cerda, a case from Cameron County and the court of appeals in Corpus Christi and Edinburg. A principal legal issue in the case is whether the alleged sexual assault during the medical exam constitutes a health care-liability claim that must meet the requirements of Texas’ restrictions on medical-malpractice law. One of those requirements is for an expert report to address whether the doctor was negligent in the patient’s treatment. A second issue is whether the expert’s report can be based solely on what Cerda pleaded in her lawsuit.
Oral arguments will be held at the TAMIU Student Center Ballroom which is on the second floor of the Student Center. Arguments begin at 9:00 a.m. and doors open at 8:00 a.m. to allow time for parking and security. We ask that briefcases and backpacks be left in your vehicles to speed security scanning at the doors.
Way to go, Victor and team that organized all the details to make this happen!!
