Brown v. Dr. Ross, et al.
A 1997 jury verdict in excess of $1.7 million in Brown v. Dr. Ross, et al. where during one of three surgeries, a large sponge was left inside Mrs. Brown’s abdomen. She required yet another invasive surgery to remove the sponge and faces potentially life-threatening intestinal problems for the rest of her life. The jury apportioned 88% of the fault against the hospital, which settled (confidential) with Mrs. Brown before trial.
