Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Torts — medical malpractice — informed consent

The Estate of June Anderson alleged, and a jury agreed, that Anne Bartel, M.D., failed to obtain Anderson’s informed consent and was causally negligent in her care and treatment of Anderson before Anderson’s death. We affirm the resulting judgment. Dr. Bartel also appeals the order denying her motion to tender the judgment amount to the clerk’s office to stop post-judgment interest from accruing. See Wis. Stat. § 815.05(8) (2009-10). We reverse the order because post-judgment interest is tolled once the money is paid into the court. Downey, Inc. v. Bradley Center Corp., 188 Wis. 2d 435, 449, 524 N.W.2d 915 (Ct. App. 1994). This opinion will not be published.
