Hey all you Tennessee medical negligence lawyers (yes, both sides):

New rule.  If you’re drafting your expert’s affidavit, don’t start until you’ve read Kennard v. Townsend at least thirty-eight times in four languages, and don’t stop until you’ve highlighted every possible medically-relevant similarity between your city and your expert’s. Also, find a way to get your expert challenges out of the way long before your designation deadline (I know … next to impossible) so you’ll have time to hire a new expert when you get kicked out of court.

Or if you’d like to skip the scary stuff altogether, just hire an expert from the same city where your case arose (I know … next to impossible).
