IL: $101M Med Mal Verdict for Baby Born with Brain Damage

Jurors deliberated for 6 hours before awarding $101M in damages to the family of a baby born with brain damage in Oak Park.  Attorneys alleged health care providers ignored the baby's external fetal monitoring strips for 6 hours before and during delivery, and experts testified the baby would have had normal functioning  if a doctor had been alerted and a C-section performed.  The Clifford Law Office represented the family.  The Chicago Sun-Times has the story.
