It’s odd to me how they talk about “access” to the GOP when so many of them are blatant attention seekers looking for any opportunity get on air.
The insurance company’s reaction is why this is in this thread
The police dept “Quality of Life” department? We are really deep into Ministry of Truth territory here.
“Excuse me, sir, but your quality of life is too high. STOP RESISTING! STOP RESISTING!..”
I actually kind of like how that sounds, though, because too high quality of life makes me think of someone sailing their yacht on their bigger yacht.
Hm. Now he’s put out the welcome mat for anyone who does want to abduct him.
The asshole attorney won, bragged online, but then…
feeding tube inserted by Quraishi accidentally pierced Sanchez’s colon, leading to a fatal infection.
WTAF?? There is no way a gastrostomy tube should ever be in a place to perforate the colon. That is just not a thing! Holy shit, I am glad they are getting another shot at this. (Not a surgeon, but I have been involved in percutaneous g-tube placements several times.)
Right? Did he place it blindfolded?
It’s funny how you are angry about the medical malfeasance and I am upset about the legal malfeasance. Because that video of the lawyer boasting? That sounds like he lied to the court and that is malpractice.
Honestly, my first thought was NG tube inserted forcefully enough to puncture the stomach and colon, but can you imagine the force needed? And they would likely not have gotten a gastroenterologist involved in that. So I am assuming percutaneous g-tube, although not specified in the article. Either way, holy shit, what a screw up!
I don’t have the background to judge the legal practice beyond “what an asshole!” I can pretty much judge the medical aspect, though. Yikes!!
Me, too. The stomach is tough. Even with a stylet it won’t perf unless there’s already a hole.
California standards are a bit different and I’m not a trial lawyer, but that nice attorney who’s stepped up to provide his serious legal chops on the retrial really ought to scour the records. That lawyer is scum, which isn’t a problem for his license (unfortunately) but it also sounds like he manipulated some evidence and probably lied in some filings. Those things are problems for his license. It’s a fine line between doing whatever to get a client off the hook and behavior unethical enough for discipline. This is part of why I don’t practice that kinda law
Edits. Damned typos. I swear I can spell.
