KDC wishes to thank the Amicus Committee, Dave Kramer, Bill Orberson and Aaron Silletto, for extra effort put into reviewing and planning for recent amicus briefs filed on behalf of KDC.  Briefs have been filed in the following matters:

  • Maguire v. Cook– Matter involves the level of evidence needed to support recovery of emotional distress damages. Prepared and filed by  Joey Wright of Thompson Miller & Simpson, Louisville and Michael Risley of Stites & Harbison, Louisville.
  • Ries v. Oliphant– Matter involves Rule 26.02 expert witness disclosure.  Prepared and filed by Michael Enzweiler of Dressman Benzinger LaVelle psc, Crestview Hills.
  • Shackelford v. Lewis– Matter involves medical malpractice case in which the COA reversed the trial court’s decision in favor of a hospital and the Supreme Court of Kentucky granted discretionary review involving the reasonable medical probability proof standard and the need for expert causation testimony.  Prepared and filed by Melissa Richardson of Walters Richardson, PLLC d/b/a WMR Defense, Lexington.
Many thanks to those of you who alerted us to the matters and to Joey, Michael, Michael and Melissa for their time spent preparing the amicus.  It is greatly appreciated.
