The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California has dismissed the second amended complaint by the family of Israel Stinson against the California Department of Public Health.
The path that Israel took — through five hospitals in two countries and several California counties — is a long one. But the court basically held that the family did not allege how the California UDDA was the cause of her injuries. Since, this is just a pleading issue, the family is likely to address the standing deficiencies in a third amended complaint.
