Negligence : Expert Witness –  Cross Examination

Where a plaintiff in medical negligence action sought a new trial on the basis that the district court erred in limiting her cross examination of the defendant’s expert witness, the judgment is affirmed because any error in limiting the questioning on the ground that it was repetitious was harmless, and the court also did not err in failing to correct defense counsel’s misstatement of law during closing.

Judgment is affirmed.
