Nicholas v. Mynster (A-6/7-11; 068439/068440)

Under a plain textual reading of N.J.S.A. 2A:53A-41,which requires that plaintiffs’ medical expert must “have specialized at the time of the occurrence that is the basis for the [malpractice] action in the same specialty or subspecialty” as defendant physicians, plaintiffs cannot establish the standard of care through an expert who, although credentialed by a hospital to treat the same condition, does not practice in the same specialties as defendant physicians. 4-25-13
