No. 5452.

180 So.2d 509 (1965)

Ronnie E. McCLOUD, a minor, by Marion E. McCloud as his next friend, and Marion E. McCloud, individually, Appellants, v. Charles HALL, Appellee.

District Court of Appeal of Florida. Second District.

Rehearing Denied December 14, 1965.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Carl G. Swanson, Cocoa Beach, for appellants.

Charles M. McCarty, Orlando, for appellee.


The plaintiffs, Ronnie E. McCloud, a minor, and Marion E. McCloud, appeal an order granting summary judgment to the defendant, Charles Hall, in a medical malpractice action. The trial court granted the motion for summary judgment on the grounds that the suit was filed more than four years after the cause of action accrued.

A careful study of the record discloses that cause of action is barred by the statute of limitations; that there was no concealment of the injury, and as a result there was no genuine issue of material facts. Accordingly, as a matter of law the cause of action was barred.


ALLEN, C.J., ANDREWS, J., and STEPHENSON, GUNTER, Associate Judge, concur.
