Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Darleen M. Jacobs, New Orleans, La., for plaintiff-appellant.
Henry Alsobrook, Jr., New Orleans, La., for defendants-appellees.
Before FAY, RUBIN, and HATCHETT, Circuit Judges.
United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
ALVIN B. RUBIN, Circuit Judge:
Too often the apparent shortcut to decision by way of an inviting motion for summary judgment turns out to be a difficult and time wasting detour. Allured by the defendant's invitation, the trial judge in this case dismissed summarily a medical malpractice suit on the basis that the claim had prescribed. We conclude that he turned off the main road too soon.
