Cleveland Clinic, et al. v. Darlene Burnham, Case No. 2015-1127
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
ISSUE: Is a trial court order requiring production of documents, conversations, or other materials claimed to be privileged a final, appealable order according to R.C. 2505.02(B)(4), thereby giving a court of appeals jurisdiction to consider the issue?
Darlene Burnham slipped and fell while visiting her sister on July 26, 2012, at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital. Burnham sued the Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Health Systems in March 2014 for her injuries. She alleged that a hospital employee was negligent by pouring liquid on the floor and neglecting to warn her of the dangerous condition, leading to the fall.
