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.
