Missouri Supreme Court Accepts Transfer of Mickels, et al. v. Danrad
On June 30, the Supreme Court of Missouri accepted transfer in a case involving a wrongful death, medical malpractice lawsuit. After suit was filed, but before trial, the trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendant. Plaintiffs appealed to the Court of Appeals, Eastern District, which affirmed the trial court's judgment in a unanimous opinion. After the Court of Appeals denied plaintiffs' request to transfer the case the Supreme Court, plaintiffs applied for transfer directly to the Supreme Court, which has now agreed to hear the appeal.
