NCAA | Weis malpractice suits begins
The Associated Press reports Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis' medical malpractice suit against two Boston doctors began Tuesday, Feb. 13. Weis' lawyer, Michael Mone, said Massachusetts General Hospital physicians Charles Ferguson and Richard Hodin failed to recognize life-threatening complications after Weis' gastric bypass surgery, allowing him to bleed internally for more than a day. Weis had the surgery in June 2002 while he was an assistant coach for the New England Patriots after battling obesity. At the time, Weis weighed roughly 350 pounds. Weis alleges in his lawsuit that the doctors acted negligently and left Weis so close to death that he received the Roman Catholic sacrament of last rites.
