Torts — medical malpractice — jury instructions — expert testimony

Jennifer, Jacob, and Sarec Trudeau appeal a judgment dismissing their medical malpractice claims following a jury trial. The Trudeaus argue the circuit court erred by: (1) including the optional “alternative methods” paragraph of Wis JI—Civil 1023 in its instruction to the jury; (2) excluding an expert’s opinions on causation; and (3) precluding cross-examination of a defense nurse with the protocols of the neonatal resuscitation program. We reject the Trudeaus’ arguments and affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
