Review granted in 'Bubb v. Brusky'

The Wisconsin Supreme Court on September 11, 2008 granted the petition to review the Court of Appeals decision, 2008 WI App 104, in this case (2007AP619). The issues:
Whether a jury should have been permitted to consider plaintiff’s informed consent claim as part if a medical malpractice suit.

Where there is debate in the medical community concerning two distinct methods of treating a particular medical condition, is the treating physician required to inform the patient of the two alternatives under Martin v. Richards, 192 Wis. 2d 156, 176, 531 N.W.2d 70 (1995)?

Statements of issues are from the most recent Table of Pending Cases.
