The February oral arguments before the Supreme Court of Kentucky are set to be heard in the Capital at Frankfort on February 13 and 14, 2014.
In the civil procedure, tort and insurance area, SCOKY will address informed consent and expert witnesses in a medical negligence case; the appropriate instructions in a medical negligence case where the doctor’s failure to diagnose resulted in the patient’s death.
Criminal law and procedure cases will address issues relating the Sixth Amendment and Rule of Criminal Procedure 2.14; a death penalty case out of Bullitt County heard at trial by Judge Geoffrey Morris.
Other issues involve workers compensation with employee leasing and discovery sanctions; and real property over a dedication by estoppel of a plat (eg., whether the road in a subdivision was public or private).
