Brooks' case has hospital in damage control mode
The court of public opinion may hold more sway than the court of law as country music singer Garth Brooks is slated to take the stand Monday morning for a second day of testimony in his lawsuit against Oklahoma's largest health care system. Brooks claims he anonymously donated $500,000 in December 2005 because he had a deal with Yukon hospital president James Moore to build a women's center that would honor his mother, who died of cancer in 1999. Moore previously testified that he did not discuss such a deal with Brooks.
