Jury Favors Doctor in Amputation Case

Aug 24, 2011

Dr. John Patterson acted appropriately when he amputated Phillip Seaton’s penis during surgery in 2007, a jury in Shelby County Circuit Court has ruled. After more than two days of emotional and sometimes embarrassing testimony from a variety witnesses, the jury of six men and six women deliberated little more than hour and ruled unanimously just before 2 p.m. Wednesday.
