Wise Carter attorneys Gaye Nell Currie and D. Jason Childress prevailed in an appeal before the Mississippi Supreme Court in a unanimous decision handed down on August 20, 2020. Wise Carter represented Hardy Wilson Memorial Hospital (“Hardy Wilson”) in a wrongful death case in the Copiah County Circuit Court (the “trial court”). The trial court granted Hardy Wilson’s motion for summary judgment in its favor on the grounds that plaintiffs failed to prove that anything Hardy Wilson allegedly did or failed to do caused the decedent’s death. The plaintiffs appealed that decision, and Wise Carter attorneys Gaye Nell and Jason also represented Hardy Wilson on appeal.
After briefing by the parties, the Mississippi Supreme Court unanimously affirmed the decision of the trial court.
