In California, a county judge has decided to put a $1.6 settlement medical malpractice case on hold. The case involves a 24 year old woman who was paralyzed by the County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, while she was undergoing back surgery.
The case was brought forth in 2005, and has been under settlement negotiations ever since. $1.5 million dollars is at state for the county, along with another million from the hospital that did the surgery.
They have scheduled the next hearing for December 5th to discuss where the case is going, whether a settlement is possible or if the girl decides to take the county to court.
