|Summary:||An eight-year-old boy, Geor Munoz, was awarded $6.2 million for severe brain damage blamed on a city hospital resident's failure to perform an emergency Cesarean section, stated the National Law Journal article. Judith Livingston represented the boy.|
A sonogram showed that Otita Munoz, Geor's mother, had abruptio placenta, a condition where the placenta prematurely breaks away from the uterine wall. An immediate Cesarean section should have been performed but was delayed, causing oxygen deprivation in the baby.
