Alexander v. Mt. Sinai Hosp. Med. Ctr., 05-1823
In a medical malpractice action removed to federal court after one of the doctors was deemed to be a federal employee, judgment for defendants is affirmed over plaintiff's arguments that: 1) the doctor could not be deemed a federal employee because he did not personally contract with a federally funded health center; 2) the district court erred in directing a verdict for one of the defendants; and 3) several rulings the district court made in the course of the trial were erroneous.
