Sweet v. Sisters of Providence (9/30/94), 881 P 2d 304 (7281 words)
The Sweets claim that the missing records precluded them from succeeding on their medical negligence claims, and that as a result they were entitled to a conclusive presumption of negligence.
At trial, the Sweets' experts testified that Jacob's brain damage was the result of hypoxic ischemia, or reduced blood flow coupled with reduced oxygen in the blood supply, during Jacob's prolonged seizure in the treatment room.
The defendants responded to the Sweets' proposal by arguing that if the Sweets referenced expert testimony by defense witnesses who were not presented at trial and whose opinions seemed to contradict those of the testifying experts, the jury would be improperly led to believe that the defendants were suppressing adverse evidence.
