2 Things:

1) I would be suing for a HELL of a lot more than 2 million if this happened to ME.

2) I bet the wife is prolly more pissed than the victim.

I served as a preliminary juror on the last case mentioned in the article.

It was a paid preliminary hearing conducted by the defence attorneys to see how it might play out before it went to trial. Needless to say, we all elected that he receive a multi-million dollar payout. He ended up getting $2.3 million, as stated in the article.

damn that would piss me off to no end..

even with millions of dollars I would still be depressed...

speaking of piss, how would a person without a penis take one?

how awful, hopefully they will have some kind of implant or something in the near future for guys like this.

Are you saying that this was not an official court function, but like a legal focus group, that the defense ran, to market-test their product, so to speak? If so, that is interesting, I did not know about that, and how did you get recruited...or did you go looking for them...(like I used to scrape by as a guinea pig for medical experiments, drug tests, college psychology tests ten bucks an hour...)?

Even like pre-modern plastic surgery tech, like when they would eunuchize someone, they would then stick like a straw in there, where the urethra was, so it wouldn't scab over the top and block the flow (or a narrow-gauge glass tube would have been cleaner, like a [SNIP], but I never read of such use, but it does seem logical, or maybe metal so it wouldn't snap, huh)

God bless this guy. How could they even make such a huge mistake? If I were him I'd be sueing for a cool 500 Million at least!

I always wondered what happened to Lorena Bobbit...

The surgeon could have told the man post op and given the couple time to adjust so to speak. With the result the same though, a couple of million dollars would sure help come to terms with the loss.

OMG! So he goes in for a circumcision and then the article further states:


But Seaton's lawyer said the doctor's post-surgical notes show the doctor thought he detected cancer and removed the penis.



The lawsuit filed earlier this month in state court claims Patterson removed Seaton's penis without consulting either Phillip or Deborah Seaton, or giving them an opportunity to seek a second opinion.


:shk:

Insanity!

You don't just amputate a body part without even asking the patient, running tests, or looking for a second opinion. What the heck. It's like, 'Well while I'm doing a circumcision, I might as well take off the whole thing just in case.'

Yikes.

Dare I say, that's not just your ordinary, run of the mill body part to us men.
If there was a homicide as a result of what happened to this guy, you'd be hard-pressed to call it unjustified.

Peace

Totally agreed. The doctor might as well have removed the guy's brain on an assumption.


Double reference but I have to be a lady.

Dare I say most woman would agree. Can't say I would want my husband in the same position.

A few million dollars would help but.......

And, in another, unrelated, unsuitable circumcision incident :
