Colorado Supreme Court denies cert., preserving Thomas N. Alfrey’s successful trial defense.

Today the Colorado Supreme Court denied certification of an appeal arising out of the defense verdict obtained by TAM Managing Partner Thomas N. Alfrey. The trial verdict was previously reported in our March 24, 2011 update.

The Court’s denial means the Colorado Court of Appeals’ decision applying the “captain of the ship” doctrine to medical malpractice cases involving operating room personnel such as the clients successfully defended by TAM is precedential Colorado law.
