A Maryland jury has awarded $55 million to a local couple in a medical malpractice lawsuit against Johns Hopkins Hospital for events surrounding the birth of their son. According to the lawsuit, the woman was rushed to the hospital for an emergency Caesarean section, but was then forced to wait two hours to have the procedure. The couple’s son was born with severe physical and mental disorders as a result of loss of oxygen during that two hour period, the suit contended.  Yvonne Wenger and Kevin Rector, Baltimore Sun  06/26/2012
