Of all the things a medic could steal from an unsuspecting patient. Wallet, car keys, cash from the pockets, jewelery. Nooo, Ms.Genius see's his feet and says to herself, I want one!

Quote:"[Economou's act was] outrageous and went beyond the bounds of decency...was odious and utterly intolerable in a civilized society," the lawsuit reads.

Really?? I think her explanation makes sense. I don't see the big deal really. Did the guy want to keep it in a jar? There's actually an episode of Six Feet Under where someone steals a foot from a cadver maybe that's different? Meh the bitter guy will get some $ and ruin a persons life in the process. Hope that brings his leg back. whatever.

Was it really reattachable/usable? If it wasn't, which seems to be the case, I don't see what's the big deal.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

The big deal is, it wasn't her foot. Detached or not from it's owner, it's not up for grabs.
It's not like it's a dinner where one person has left a lamb chop on their plate, and the person across from them poses with their fork at the ready while saying, are you going to eat that?

I guess I'm not so much condoning the actions of the women, but what's done is done, she's no longer working for them so why sue? It was wrong, but in the end no harm was done.

I do see the point in using human tissue to train a dog to find bodies but the method she used was wrong. Seriously , you can't find human tissue at a medical clinic/morgue ?

As for the guy suing , what's he gonna sue for , honestly ?

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

He's suing just to get money. None of the rest of the story matters. It's an opportunity for a free money grab.

As far as her taking it, I think that was just a case of the stupids. Yeah, it might seem like a good idea to you at the time, but really, shouldn't you ask SOMEONE first? It's someone's foot for crying out loud. You cannot has. Not yours.

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

You're right, but what would have happened to the lump of flesh if she would have done what she was supposed to do? Even amputated body parts are burned/thrown away as hospital waste. I highly doubt that the victim would have ever heard of his foot if he wouldn't have found out that the medic took it.
I have no idea what they did to the remains of my fingertip after it got into a plane, and I don't even care. The remains of a leg is a little different of course.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
