Suit against Miami-based Jackson Memorial Hospital dismissed
A federal court in Miami has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a lesbian who was not allowed to visit her dying partner at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Janice Langbehn's partner, Lisa Pond, suffered a fatal brain aneurysm on Feb. 18, 2007. At Jackson, Langbehn said, a social worker would not let her visit Pond because Florida is "an anti-gay state." Jackson countered that Langbehn was not discriminated against and defended social worker Garnett Frederick, who denied making the comment. Langbehn sued the hospital.
