That's how I feel about the Jahi McMath case. Just when I thought this case would sleep with the fishes, and I wouldn't have to think/write about it anymore, the family files a lawsuit and Jahi McMath is in the news again.

Here is the malpractice complaint that was filed against Dr. Fredericks Rosen, the surgeon who performed Jahi's surgery and Children's Hospital Oakland.

T&T readers, here is your opportunity to weigh in on what you think will happen with this lawsuit.

Other: This will never go to trial, and CHO will settle for an undisclosed amount.

Thank you VF. I added the category you posted about.

They had to search the whole state to find a lawyer in Torrance who'd take the case? Guess no one in the bay area would touch it with a 10 foot pole. Greed will never win.

It's interesting that Mr. Dolan was not interested in filing.

Betsy Gilbert:
(Great name Betsy! ;)
Yes, T&T has seen the filing. We have a copy up on T&T's SCRIBD account. It's linked in this story. I'll make sure it's added to the Jahi McMath Quick Links Page.

I can't even begin to understand how this has happened. How she was allowed to take a dead body home.How she's been able to continue this charade and the public has funded it all. And she's posted so many images of the expensive handbags,meals,tattos etc. that's been paid for by the public. Now she wants to come back to court in a bid to continue this. As well as sue an excellent hospital over what her and her family did to kill Jahi. Yes, I believe they killed her as sure as if they had shot her with a gun.

Dolan said from the beginning that he would not be involved in a civil suit. I figuered he knew the case was a turkey so he passed on it early on.
Why has there not been a response to the March 3, 2015 filing in the Mcmath case? I thought they had 30 days to respond and all motions would be noted and available as public record.
Is this even a real case or some kind of legal posturing to get attention?

Betsy Gilbert:
There may have been a response filing and the mainstream media has not reported on it.

Or, extensions were granted.

Since I don't know the civil case/law as well as criminal, or the rules of that County, I honestly don't know.
