Atkins sued by dead patient over CAM

Post by iain » Mon Jul 05, 2004 1:32 pm

To quote from today's Metro paper in the UK
The late creator of the Atkins diet is being sued by one of his former patients - even though she is also dead...The original suit, filed when both were alive, claimed Dr Atkins and two colleagues told Ms Rubick to shun chemotherapy in favour of alternative treatments.

I don't know what she's upset about, she should be plenty thin by now.
(Bad taste, I know).
You'll all be mine, in the end.

Hey, would an attorney using her dramtic and provable loss of weight as proof of the validity of the diet really surprise you?

Mmmm, could this be termed a skeleton case?
