Judith A. SPONAUGLE et al., Appellants, v. PRE-TERM, INC., et al., Appellees.

District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

Decided February 13, 1980.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Ken M. Gozur, Washington, D. C., with whom Harvey Yale Smith, Washington, D. C., was on the brief for appellants.

Gary W. Brown, Washington, D. C., with whom James C. Gregg and Ellen A. Patterson, Washington, D. C., were on the brief for appellee Pre-Term, Inc.

Brian C. Shevlin, Washington, D. C., was on the brief for appellee Kim.

Before GALLAGHER, NEBEKER and MACK, Associate Judges.

MACK, Associate Judge:

Appellants, plaintiffs below, lost their medical malpractice suit in a jury trial. They argue here that it was error for the trial court to require their medical expert to state his opinion in terms of a "reasonable medical certainty" as to what was "the" (as opposed to "a") proximate cause of their injury. Because the record as a whole does not reveal that appellants' case was restricted in this manner, we affirm.
