Ornelas v. Fry

In Ornelas v. Fry, 151 Ariz. 324, 329, 727 P.2d 819, 824 (App. 1986), an organ donor sued the donee's anesthesiologist for the unnecessary loss of a donated kidney. The Ornelas court found that the anesthesiologist did not owe the donor a duty because the donor "failed to allege or prove the existence of a physician/patient relationship between the donor and the anesthesiologist or any other legal theory which would give rise to any legal duty on the part of the anesthesiologist." Id. .
