Wasting Time And Money


Most of the opinion in Riley v. Medtronics [sic], Inc., C.A. No. 2:10-01071, slip op. (W.D. Pa. Aug. 8, 2011), is a fact-specific statute of limitations discussion – oddly occurring in the context of a motion to dismiss – about a less-than-diligent plaintiff who did next to nothing until the statute had almost expired and an obstreperous (or so the plaintiff alleges) hospital that refused to turn over that plaintiff’s own medical records when he (or more properly his lawyer) finally got around to requesting them. That’s interesting in the sense that a car crash on the other side of the highway is interesting, but there's nothing in that that's really bloggable.
