The complainant sued them for medical malpractice, claiming that they didn’t provide proper care for an infant’s retinal disorder, leading to retinopathy of prematurity and detached retinas. The defendants asked the court to dismiss the case for which the court asked the defendants to prove that the plaintiff wasn’t harmed by any mistakes. In response, the complainant filed an unsupported expert affidavit, which didn’t prove anything substantial. As a result, the court granted the defendant’s motions for summary judgment, dismissing the case against them. Casetext
