Wisconsin parents win $11.4 million in malpractice suit

AP/Chicago Tribune, October 24, 2008

A jury has awarded the parents of a brain-damaged Wisconsin boy $11.4 million in a medical malpractice case. Chad and Amy Jelinek claimed in a 2006 lawsuit that negligent care by a nurse and nurse midwife at Gunderson Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, WI, resulted in brain injuries to their son Laine during his birth in 2005. A Crawford County jury sided with the Jelineks after a three-week trial.
