Medical Malpractice Suit Declared Mistrial

Comments Off

A medical malpractice lawsuit brought by Notre Dame Coach Charlie Weis has been declared a mistrial after two defendant doctors helped a juror who had collapsed during testimony.

The unidentified gentleman began to moan before he collapsed during testimony by an expert defense witness.

Weis’ attorney moved for mistrial after the juror was removed from the courtroom to be taken to the hospital.

Weis — the former offensive coordinator of the Patriots — claimed in his lawsuit that the doctors failed to recognize life-threatening complications after gastric bypass surgery in 2002.

The case had been expected to go to the jury later this week.
