Florida Jury Awards $168 Million in Malpractice Suit

Charles Broward with the Florida Times Union reports that a Florida jury has awarded $168 million to a Clay County deputy who filed a lawsuit against Memorial Hospital Jacksonville over a botched gastric bypass surgery in 2007. The suit alleges that complications arose during the surgery which were not treated in a timely fashion, causing the deputy to suffer severe brain injuries due to "cardiac arrest and septic shock." The deputy still suffers lingering effects from the surgery, including inability to "walk, feed, clean and bathe himself."
