Christopher Dolan’s Other Brain Death Case

From today’s San Francisco Examiner.

“I can tell you, as you will soon hear, that a brain death diagnosis made in the Bay Area recently at a well-known hospital made by four members of the hospital’s medical staff was recently overturned by two independent neurologists who conducted an examination pursuant to a court order.”

“Like the McMath case, I handled that too albeit in a less public manner than the McMath case. So are people crazy who challenge doctors? No. Are doctors fallible? Yes. Should life be taken by mistake? Not on my watch.”
