Charlene Jorgensen and Michael Jorgensen
v.
Adam B. Smith, Adam Smith, M.D., P.C., and Tri-State Specialists, L.L.P.

Defendants in medical malpractice action appeal a district court order denying their motion for partial summary judgment. They contend the court should have dismissed plaintiff’s claim for negligent hiring and retention due to plaintiff’s failure to file a certificate of merit affidavit on that claim pursuant to Iowa Code section 147.140 (2021).
