TDLA Professional Negligence and Healthcare Co-Chair Chris Vrettos of Gideon, Cooper and Essary, PLC will present our next TDLA Free webinar on May 15th at Noon CST/ 1pm EST.

On February 28, 2020, the Supreme Court of Tennessee, in Willeford v. Klepper, et al., invalidated Tenn. Code Ann. §29-26-121(f) (permitting health care defendants to apply for a QPO for ex parte treating provider interviews) as enacted, but upheld an elided version of the statute making it discretionary rather than mandatory. In this CLE, Health Care Section Co-Chair (and Willeford counsel for Appellee Livingston Regional Hospital) Chris Vrettos will cover the rationale behind the majority’s opinion and the implications of the decision for future practice.

This webinar has been approved for one general hour of TN CLE credit. Registrants will receive the webinar link prior to the webinar.
