Golden v. Johnson Memorial Hospital, Inc

In Golden v. Johnson Memorial Hospital, Inc., 66 Conn. App. 518, 529, 785 A.2d 234 (2001), the plaintiff argued that his claim fell under the continuing course of conduct doctrine because the defendant pathologist in that case breached his duty to warn the plaintiff of an increased medical risk following an original misdiagnosis. The only evidence adduced that the defendant actually had knowledge that the plaintiff was at risk came in the form of an affidavit from the plaintiff's expert medical witness, who attested that the defendant "should have known" of his original misdiagnosis and the attendant increased risks related to that misdiagnosis. Id. at 527.
