Click to open document 10/14/2021 Certified Great Public Importance DISP-APPROVED FSC-OPINION: We answer the rephrased question in the negative. Because the trial court's order permitting discovery related to the financial relationship between Dodgen's insurer and defense experts was consistent with established law, we agree with the Fourth District that the trial court did not depart from the essential requirements of the law in denying Dodgen's motion for protective order. Accordingly, we approve the result reached by the Fourth District. It is so ordered. ***Corrected opinion issued October 21, 2021.***
