From Chicago Breaking News:
"A $6.5 million settlement has been reached on behalf of a 7-year-old Aurora boy who allegedly suffered a brain injury at birth at Provena Mercy Medical Center, the Beacon News reports. Attorneys for the boy, Roberto Morales Jr., say the attending obstetrician, as well as the labor and delivery nurse, failed to respond to the baby's low heart rate and reduced oxygen flow caused by the drug Pitocin. The settlement was reached Friday afternoon in Cook County Circuit Court. Morales was treated at Provena Mercy on April 7, 2001."
