Doc slammed with $20.5 million in damages after lipo death

Philadelphia Daily News, May 29, 2008
Daniel and Colleen Fledderman decided in 2001 that the doctor who performed the fatal liposuction surgery on their daughter, an 18-year-old Penn State freshman, must be held accountable for her death. Exactly seven years later, a jury has awarded the Fleddermans $20.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages, finding that Richard Glunk, MD, and his nurse anesthetist were responsible for their daughter's death.
