NCAA | Mistrial declared in Weis trial
The Associated Press reports a Boston judge declared a mistrial Tuesday, Feb. 20, in a medical malpractice case brought by Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis after a juror collapsed and several doctors, including the two defendants, surgeons Charles Ferguson and Richard Hodin, rushed to his aid. The juror collapsed while listening to the testimony of Dr. David Brooks, an expert who was saying the doctors acted responsibly in their treatment of Weis. Weis claims the doctors acted negligently by failing to recognize life-threatening internal bleeding and infection after his gastric bypass surgery in 2002. The juror was taken away in an ambulance. His condition and identity were not immediately known. The case was expected to go to the jury Wednesday, Feb. 21.
