Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Johnson County, Paul D. Miller, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J. (12 pages)

            The plaintiff appeals from the district court’s summary judgment order dismissing the medical malpractice lawsuit against the defendants.  OPINION HOLDS: We find summary judgment was proper because the plaintiff’s expert testimony failed to establish causation and could not establish a prima facie case of medical negligence.  We therefore affirm the trial court’s summary judgment ruling in favor of the defendants.
