Disabled Brooklyn Boy awarded $25,000,000

A Brooklyn newborn who was discharged from New York Methodist Hospital despite a severe case of jaundice that would damage his brain and render him permanently handicapped, has won $26 million from a jury.

Jaelin Sence, now 6, was released by the medical center and Dr. Ioanis Atoynatan without a proper exam or follow up - even though his mother was complaining of the boy's yellowing skin, jurors found.

"I don't know if I've seen a more preventable case," said Thomas Moore, who represented Sence, who can't use his arms and legs, and, even six years after his birth, has still not said the words "mama" or "dada" to his mom Myrtho and father Jean.
