D.D. v. Univ. of Medicine & Dentistry of N.J. and Rutgers (A-29/30-11; 068812)

Neither attorney inattention nor incompetence constitutes an extraordinary circumstance sufficient to excuse failure to comply with the ninety-day filing deadline under the TCA; plaintiff’s medical proofs were insufficient to meet the extraordinary circumstances standard; and the doctrine of substantial compliance cannot serve to relieve a claimant of the TCA’s written-notice requirement.  3-12-13
