The Superior Court held in Quinby v. Burmeister that the jury should have been instructed on res ipsa loquitur. The case involved a quadriplegic plaintiff's fall from a post-operating room table, which caused injuries that ultimately led to the plaintiff's death. The court overturned the jury verdict for the defense, ordered a liability judgment against them, and remanded for a new trial on damages. A copy of the opinion is available on the court's Web site.
