Notre Dame Coach Loses Second Medical Malpractice Trial

We previously reported on the mistrial of the first trial of Notre Dame football coach (and former New England Patriots offensive coordinator) Charlie Weis who sued two surgeons for medical malpractice for allegedly botching his care after gastric bypass surgery. Weis alleged the surgeons acted negligently when they allowed him to bleed internally for 30 hours after gastric bypass surgery before performing a second surgery to correct the complication.

Update: the online edition of the Boston Herald reported Tuesday that a Boston jury has just exonerated the two surgeons of any wrongdoing in the medical malpractice case. The doctors’ defense had been that Weis ignored their medical advice, and crammed the surgery into a timeline weeks shorter than they had recommended.
