    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    According to the MA Trial Court Case Access record, the tribunal was held today as scheduled. There is not yet an indication as to the decision. There is also no mention of the tribunal or the decision on the Miracle FaceBook. That indicates to me that the Pelletier team did not get a an...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    The Pelletier family's legal team filed their offer of proof with the court on August 10th in preparation for the malpractice tribunal scheduled for August 23rd. It is still unclear if this tribunal is for one practioner or all of them. An attorney friend has told me that it may be 1 tribunal...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    A medical malpractice tribunal has been scheduled for August 23, 2016 at 2:00 PM. The calender has been updated but so far I don't see any notation in the docket info (notice to appear, etc). It is not clear to me if this malpractice tribunal is for one doctor or all four.

    Dr Newton has filed her answers to the Pelletier's second ammended complaint. She has also filed a request for a medical malpractice tribunal in the field of pediatrics. That makes it 4 different specialty areas for the malpractice tribunals; psychiatry, psychology, neurology, and now...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    Thanks Sweetmom. I too hope that the Tribunals shed some light on the true facts of this case. I know that the results of the Tribunal are public record, but I am not sure exactly how to access the records. As soon as I have a bit more time, I will research that. Although I don't think the...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    Although I firmly agree that sometimes the best thing to do is to change doctors when we are unhappy with the care we are receiving, this situation was a bit more complex then not changing doctors/hospitals soon enough. The parents now claim that they brought her into the hospital due to the...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    So far there is no indication of when the medial malpractice tribunal(s) will be held. I assume that we will see Dr Newton's attorneys file a formal request for a tribunal. I am not certain that is necessary, but the other 3 doctors did this. Even at the tribunal, the Pelletiers will not be...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    A search of the Boston Globe index and archives did not turn up any recent articles about Justina, the Pelletiers, or this lawsuit. I also could not find any reference to a "landmark decision" in this case in any major newspaper or media outlet. When I reread the Miracle FaceBook post, I...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    I just noticed that the "Miracle: FaceBook page posted a message a few days ago from Justina along with a video of what she said was "me fighting to walk again." The video is actually a chronology of her progress horseback riding. Although they have referred to it as "therapeutic riding", it...

    The hearing was held today. The judge has not yet ruled - it is listed as "under advisement." ETA: This was a hearing on the motion to dismiss the lawsuit against Dr Alice Newton for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    I did not take your post that way, and I hope that no one took my response that way either. You expressed legitimate concern about a young woman who is experiencing a series of medical concerns. I am concerned that this particular symptom would be particularly troubling to a young woman who...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    I noticed the continued hair loss but your post made me look at the pictures again. You are right, the hair loss seems so much more extreme. I feel badly for Justina. For a young woman who seems focused on looks, such extreme hair loss must be very troubling. As for Dr Korson, I don't think...

    DC - Justina gets standing ovation from Congress

    Pictures on Facebook today show Justina in her old red wheelchair, not the power chair. She is out a a concert with her sister so it is possible that her sister did not have a way to transport the much heavier power chair. I did not mention it above, but power chairs are much bulkier and...
