JOHNSON v. NACOGDOCHES CTY, 109 S.W.3d 532 (Tex.App. [12th Dist.] 2001)

James E. Girards

Practice Area:Medical Malpractice

Outcome:Summary Judgment improper with TTCA Actual Notice

Description:The Court of appeals agreed with Plaintiffs that when a director of a government hospital knows the identity of the patient, the death of that patient, and the hospital's potential liability for causing the death - and all within one month of the death - summary judgment is not proper based on a claim that the hospital did not have actual notice of the claim within the statutory 6-month notice period.
