Jahi Mcmath: Biological Father Sues Hospital Claiming Botched Surgery


(San Jose Mecury News) – The biological father of Jahi McMath has sued an Oakland hospital and the doctor who performed surgery on the girl, who was declared brain-dead more than two years ago after post-surgical complications.

Milton McMath, who was largely estranged from Jahi before her fateful surgery, filed the lawsuit Wednesday, exactly two years after his 13-year-old daughter had nose and throat surgery at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland to treat sleep apnea. His lawsuit, which is nearly identical to the claim filed by Jahi's mother, Nailah Winkfield, will likely be consolidated as the complicated case slowly crawls through Alameda County Superior Court, attorneys have said.
