Marsala v. Yale New Haven Hospital

The medical futility lawsuit for damages against Yale New Haven Hospital was scheduled for trial next month.  But the case is now stayed while the plaintiffs take up an appeal.

The appeal concerns whether plaintiffs can pursue their IIED (intentional infliction of emotional distress) claim.  In other cases across the country, IIED is typically the strongest and most successful claim asserted by the families of patients whose life-sustaining treatment was unilaterally withheld or withdrawn.
