Jahi McMath – Hearing to Unseal 2013 Records

The Alameda County Superior Court is holding a hearing on Thursday afternoon to determine whether to unseal medical records from the 2013 disputes over whether Jahi McMath was brain dead.  


Judge Pulido already issued his tentative ruling granting the defendant physician’s motion to unseal.  Basically, by filing the instant medical malpractice lawsuit and again contesting that Jahi is not dead, her right to privacy is outweighed.
