Court Document, Skol v. Pierce

Somebody dug around and found a PDF of the actual court document in that lawsuit I blogged about recently. Seeing as how it’s 31 pages, I haven’t yet read the whole thing, but thought some of you may be interested in the full document alleging the gross violation of trust and maltreatment from this doctor, because the woman did not call HIM before going to the hospital.
