Bob Goldstucker Cross-Examines Plaintiff’s Expert in Defense Win.
Bob was co-counsel on a case tried in May in Port Orchard, Washington. After three weeks, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant physician. Bob’s role in the trial was limited to cross-examination of plaintiff’s standard of care expert. Bob is frequently asked to do just that: cross-examine the opposing standard of care expert(s) and work with the defendant physician and defense standard of care expert(s) on their presentation on direct examination and to prepare them for cross-examination, while leaving the handling of the rest of the trial to co-counsel. In this case it was alleged that the physician negligently amputated two toes 18 months apart when he mistakenly assumed the patient had osteomyelitis, but pathology came back as negative for osteomyelitis for each toe.
