I did it. Got the case filed with 28 minutes to spare before the deadline.

Link below.

http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/circuit.jsp

select - Roanoke City Circuit Court
click on begin
check the box - civil
enter name - Seibert Beatrice
clear any case number if one shows up
clear hearing date
click on search by name
click on the case number by my name
click on services at the top of the page to see all 14 defendants

Carilion Clinic owns the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and then there were 12 docs I named in the suit.

There is only one lawsuit - they just listed it 3 different ways - they all have the same case number.

The way I understand the law the hospital has 30 days to respond to the case.

So that means I need to locate my expert witnesses and find a lawyer within the 30 days if possible. I can take longer, but it would go much smoother if I can get everything lined up.

Physicians I need - infectious disease and pulmonology and internal medicine

I have some names but could use more. If anyone knows of a lyme literate doc in those specialties that might be a potential witness please send an email to the address below.

Thanks.

Do these doctors have to have a medical liscence to practice in VA specifically?

Also, can these doctors practice medicine on patients at academic/research facilities, or do they have to be out there on the front lines, so to speak

Amanda - No do not have to have VA license - just a medical license in the specialty. But the best experts would be ones with hospital privileges which makes it much more difficult to find lyme literate or even lyme friendly docs.

Actually University docs are often the best expert witnesses because many of them seem to make a sideline of doing that.

What about a "babesia expert" as someone with more specific expertise than infectious disease?
ie any of these authors: http://scholar.google.com/scholar?as_ylo=2010&q=babesia&hl=en&as_sdt=0,34

Do you have a case summary anywhere?

- Working Dx: Protozoa x3, Bartonella
- Tx: Biaxin, Mycobutin, Ivermectin, boluoke, serapeptase, allimed, silver ACS 200 spray, Mg, Iodoral, fish oil, Vit's B, C, D, NAC, etc

imagine2 - Hubby's former LLMD thought that doc might be too controversial due to past legal problems. Still one my list - but the lawyer I end up with will have to make the final call.

SickSci - Working on that angle. Need that expert but also need infectious disease and internal medicine.

Just got back from the ILADS conference - talked to several researchers, labs and doctors. Lots to follow up on. Not going to name any names. Will update when I have any solid leads.

The best news is that I may have a lawyer. Should know in the next week or so.
