Amundsen v. University of Utah, 2019 UT 49 (Aug. 15, 2019)

Aug 15, 2019

The supreme court affirmed the district court’s dismissal of the plaintiff’s medical malpractice claim against the University of Utah based on the plaintiff’s failure to timely file a notice of claim as required by Utah’s Governmental Immunity Act.  The Court held the plaintiff’s notice of claim, filed nearly three years after she received the medical services, was untimely because she knew or should have known at the time of her services that her doctor was a governmental employee.
