Notre Dame Coach Lose Malpractice Trial

Charlie Weis, the head coach of the Notre Dame football team, lost the medical malpractice case he filed in Massachusetts.

The lawsuit arose out of gastric bypass surgery Weis had in June of 2002.  According to this article posted on,  "Weis, 51, who became ill after the operation, alleged that the surgeons were negligent for letting him bleed internally for 30 hours before they started a second surgery to respond to the complication. He testified he still has numbness and pain in his feet and had to use a motorized cart shortly after the operation."
