Mealey's (May 19, 2017, 8:09 AM EDT) -- ATLANTA — A Third Division Georgia Court of Appeals panel on May 12 affirmed a trial court’s dismissal of a medical malpractice suit against a hospital because the plaintiff’s expert’s affidavit was not sufficient under Georgia law because it does not contain any specific instance of an alleged failure on the part of the hospital (Jason Keith Ziglar v. St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System Inc., No. A17A0214, Ga. App. 3rd Div., 2017 Ga. App. LEXIS 205).
