and EMS and fire personnel were dispatched to the residence. Call logs from the Emergency Management Services show a police officer and firefighters arrived at the apartment within two to three minutes of receiving the first call, but Butler was not there. The responders were informed that Butler was transported by private vehicle to Danville Regional. The driver of the minivan carrying Butler was pulled over at the intersection of Keen Street and North Main Street for crossing the center line into oncoming traffic to go around an unmarked Street Crimes Unit vehicle. When officers approached the car, a woman passenger got out of the minivan and hysterically explained why they went around the officers. The encounter documented by the body-worn camera Street Crimes officers wear captured the passenger and Butler pleading with officers to let them go so they could get Butler to the hospital. Danville Police Chief Philip Broadfoot said when the officers realized what the situation was, they immediately radioed for help. The Danville Life Saving Crew ambulance that was originally routed to the apartment on North Main Street was redirected to the traffic stop so Butler could be transported the remaining 1.6 miles to DRMC. Broadfoot said it is against department policy to give private vehicles an emergency escort or transport someone suffering from a medical emergency in a police car to the hospital. In an extreme emergency, the officer could make that call, Broadfoot said, but in this situation, he said Butler received medical attention faster because of the traffic stop.

Murray was never an AEG employee but rather was chosen and paid by Jackson for nearly four years until Jackson died, AEG lawyers contend. "I don't know how you can't look to Mr. Jackson's responsibility there," AEG lawyer Marvin Putnam told CNN. "He was a grown man." Child molestation accusations against Jackson, for which he was acquitted after a trial, are relevant because they "resulted in an incredible increase in his drug intake," Putnam said. "Mr. Jackson is a person who was known to doctor shop," Putnam said. "He was known to be someone who would tell one doctor one thing and another doctor something else." When Palazuelos ruled in February that case warranted a jury trial, she found there was evidence to support the Jacksons' claim that AEG Live executives could have foreseen that Murray would use dangerous drugs in treating the singer.

Wrongful death trial nixed, non-suit coming
They are often used to deliver a message. Austin Personal Injury Lawyers - Perlmutter & Schuelke, LLP Many families that face the loss of a loved one due to a negligent action on the part of another, want to make sure someone else does not experience what they went through. In filing a wrongful death lawsuit, they have a chance to send a message to not only the wrongdoer, but to society in general, about the circumstances of their loss and their wish to save someone the grief they face, remarked Brooks Schuelke, an Austin wrongful death lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke. Some wrongful death cases do not make it into the courtroom, and are settled after a round of negotiations. Consider the case of a 20-year-old University of Mississippi junior footballer, Bennie Abram III, who died during a football practice in 2010. The lawsuit alleged that the university did not have proper protocol in place and did not adhere to workout guidelines for students with sickle-cell trait a disease known to deform red blood cells after arduous exercise. It also suggested that athletic department staff were reckless and careless in pushing the man to continue his workout despite evidence he was physically struggling. In this reported case, the young man collapsed during the first practice of the year. He died later in a nearby hospital.

McGown The case was slated to go to trial on Monday, Sept. 19. However, a court official told the Southeast Texas Record the plaintiff intended to file a notice of non-suit. According to the original petition, on Dec. 2, 2008, Jacques Campbell died at his home as a result of the negligence of defendant. Court records show that on Aug. 20 Shinnick filed a motion for summary judgment, stating that she and the decedent lived together for 20 years prior to his death and that there is no evidence she breached her duty to care for him. The plaintiff alleged the defendant failed to give the decedent his medications for dialysis, causing his death, court papers say.
