(May 19, 2017, 10:03 AM EDT) -- SHREVEPORT, La. — A Louisiana appellate panel on May 17 affirmed a defense verdict in a medical malpractice suit against a hospital and the trial judge’s order denying the plaintiff’s motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict or, in the alternative, a new trial because the evidence presented at trial supported the jury’s verdict (Jane Newman, et al. v. LSU Health Sciences Center Shreveport, et al., No. 51,375-CA, La. App. 2nd Cir., 2017 La. App. LEXIS 844).
