A Baldwin couple have filed suit in Douglas County District Court against a Lawrence obstetrician alleging negligence and malpractice after one of their twin sons was stillborn.
Attorneys for Brenda and Jeff Saile, Baldwin, filed the lawsuit Wednesday against Dr. Scott Gray, Lawrence. In the suit, the Sailes contend that Gray was negligent in the prenatal care of Mrs. Saile, who gave birth to twins in June 1989. One twin, Mitchell Saile, was stillborn.
In the suit, the plaintiffs assert that Gray "failed to maintain careful monitorings and take appropriate action by the use of ordinary care and diligence to prevent or reduce the danger and prevent the death of Mitchell Saile." The family also said that it incurred mental anguish, suffering and bereavement, along with bills in excess of $50,000.
Attempts to reach Gray for comment this morning were not successful.
