Georgia courts have historically taken a hard stance on collateral source evidence.  Defendants have always faced an uphill battle in discussing collateral source issues in trial.  Encouragingly, a recent opinion by the Georgia Court of Appeals may signal courts’ softening their stance on this position.  Case cite: ML Healthcare Services LLC et al. v.
