Where a plaintiff claimed that he contracted Hepatitis C by participating in blood draws during the defendant’s research program, the jury instructions on the res ipsa loquitor claim were not erroneous, and the jury verdict in favor of the defendant is affirmed because the plaintiff also did not show error in the admission of the defendant’s expert witness testimony.
Judgment is affirmed.
