Connor v. Southwest Florida Regional Medical Center, Inc.

Florida Supreme Court
668 So. 2d 175 (1995)


Facts

Southwest Florida Medical Center, Inc. (Southwest) (plaintiff) sued the Connors (defendants) for payment for medical services provided to Mr. Connor. The trial court declined to expand the doctrine of necessaries to require a wife to pay for her husband’s medical expenses and dismissed Mrs. Connor because she had not signed any agreement to pay Southwest. The court of appeals reversed, holding that Southwest could recover Mr. Connor’s medical expenses from Mrs. Connor. Mrs. Connor appealed.
