Wheeler v. Methodist Richardson Medical Center
Dallas Court of Appeals, No. 05-17-00332-CV (December 7, 2017)
Justices Lang-Meirs (opinion linked here), Brown, and Boatright
The Dallas Court of Appeals disagreed. It held the trial court should err on the side of granting an extension under §74.351 and must grant the extension if the deficiencies in the report are curable. The trial court therefore abused its discretion in dismissing the plaintiffs’ claims.
