Anesthesiologist Competent to Testify on Ophthalmologic Effects, Says Idaho Supreme Court
Reversing a trial court's evidentiary ruling, the Idaho Supreme Court has held that an anesthesiologist was competent to opine that a patient's anesthesia caused post-operative blindness in his right eye. The lower court had wanted to hear from an ophthalmologist. See Foster v. Traul, No. 33537 (Idaho Dec. 24, 2007).
