OMG- you ranted and railed that the doctors KILLED your mother-in-law, but your outrage over that wasn't intense enough to try to stop that "murdering" doctor from "killing" someone else??<quoted text>
No, my family isn't a sue happy bunch. The idea of bringing a malpractice suit came and left our minds in minutes.
I know the trend in America, and particularly in California, is to sue - but that's not our way. That's not the true American way. It's a fad that'll end just as all fads do.
We chalk it up first to God's will, second to human error. We KNOW the doctors didn't want their patient to die.
A situation such as this is NOT about being "sue happy", RR.
Based on what YOU said about her doctors, it would be a case of doing all you could to insure that her doctors would never be able to botch up any further surgeries resulting in the deaths of other people.
But given how selfish you are, I'm not surprised that such a notion obviously never even occurred to you.
Of course, I am quite sure that the truth of the matter is that you had NO case because the doctors did nothing wrong, were competent and performed to the best of their abilities.
