No crime found in hospital organ harvesting

AP/USA Today, March 9, 2009
A Pennsylvania district attorney says no crimes were committed by officials at a hospital when an 18-year-old man's organs were harvested. Erie County District Attorney Brad Foulk said that he reviewed medical files from Hamot Medical Center in Erie. He says the hospital followed proper procedures when they declared Gregory Jacobs dead and got permission to take his organs in March 2007. The teen's parents are suing the hospital.
