Two auto accidents in four months – consolidate?

Last week, an interlocutory appeal was filed presenting a consolidation issue (note, it was just filed, not granted or denied yet).

In August of 2012, Ronnie Willis filed a lawsuit against two defendants, Lindsay S. Taylor and Bennie Bailey, over two separate auto accidents. The one involving Taylor occurred on May 10, 2011 and the second, involving Bailey, occurred on September 9, 2011.    Taylor filed a motion to sever on the grounds of misjoinder several weeks after the lawsuit was filed.  It was granted.  In July 2014, Bailey filed a motion to consolidate for purposes of discovery and trial.  It was granted.  Taylor filed the interlocutory appeal.

Apparently Willis is complaining of lower back pain and mild numbness to his left lower leg from both accidents.

  1. I watch “True Stories From the ER” all the time! Doesn’t that count? ER doctor sounds like a great job. Fixing a problem in ten minutes or an hour rather than ten years.
