In its third year of competition, Loyola Mock Trial continued its development, fielding three teams for the first time in program history. The civil case was Kissner v. Polk County Hospital. Tony Kissner was a young, up-and-coming amateur golfer and had been considering turning professional for quite some time. Kissner filed suit against Polk Hospital, alleging that they were negligent in allowing Martin Dutcher to be released from 24-hour supervised care without first ensuring that he longer posed a threat. Kissner alleges that because of the negligence of Polk Hospital, he was injured and as such was entitled to damages. This case has not been bifurcated and, as such, negligence and damages are to be considered in the same proceeding.
