Trenton, New Jersey (NewYorkInjuryNews.com)–In 1998, the infant boy, Casey Pellicer, suffered from brain damage by being deprived of oxygen after he underwent surgery at Saint Barnabas Medical Center for a cyst that had formed near his spinal cord, which became the largest medical malpractice suit in the history of the state, as announced by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
According to sources, the court documents show that the child struggles with considerable verbal, intellectual and rational cognitive functions and processes, making him fully dependant on his guardians for care.
Thursday, the Judges agreed that the Essex County trial jury participating in this case held a certain predisposition was influenced by discriminatory sources during the choosing of the jury, thus being opposed to the medical professionals involved, as well as to Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, according to the Associated Press.
The Court ruled that this case requires another trial, since there is no way of knowing who the biased jurors were during this case thus the case requires another hearing before a final verdict can be reached.
