As a part of its "Appeals on Wheels" initiative, a panel of Indiana Court of Appeals judges will visit St. Mary-of-the-Woods College Nov. 17 to hear arguments in a medical malpractice suit.
Judges L. Mark Bailey, Melissa May, and Nancy Vaidik will hear Anna Williams, et al. v. M. Jayme Adelsperger, D.D.S., No. 49A05-0905-CV-260. The Williams family filed suit in December 2004 against Dr. M. Jayme Adelsperger alleging malpractice through August 2002. The trial court granted summary judgment for Adelsperger on the grounds the suit wasn't brought within the statute of limitations.
The Williamses argue the statute of limitations shouldn't be applied to them because even though they suspected malpractice as early as 2003, the doctor actively denied Anna Williams' symptoms were related to her treatment.
Arguments begin at 10:30 a.m. EST in the Conservatory of Music on campus in St. Mary-of-the-Woods.
