Interesting Malpractice Case To
Be Heard by New Jurists
Little four-years-old Wilhelmene
Hager, while feasting on peanuts, al
lowed one to go down her "Sunday
throat." It lodged in her bronchial
tubes, and she was taken to Dr. Wil
liam Clark at Harvey. Because, it is
alleged, of the methods he employed
in removing or attempting to remove
the peanut, the little girl's organs of
respiration were permanently impair
ed. Her guardian, J. J. Schmidt,
brought suit in the Wells county dis
trict court for $10,000 in damages, al
leging malpractice, and a judgment
was procured against the practition
er for $5,000.
Dr. Clark has appealed from the ver
dict of the district court, and the
case is set for hearing in the supreme
court the first week in January. The
action is one of the first and one of
the most important which the new
court will have to adjudicate.
