Melissa Rivers Sues N.Y. Clinic Over Joan Rivers’ Death

A Suit Against the Clinic — Plus a Twist

What’s going on here that hasn’t been alleged before? After Joan’s death, New York state health investigators documented several “deficiencies” in the procedure, but came short of alleging negligence or malpractice.

This new lawsuit names Yorkville Endoscopy Center and Joan’s personal physician Gwen Korovin as defendants. It alleges medical malpractice, as evidenced by the doctor snapping a “selfie” with her while she was unconscious, failing to perform a tracheotomy when it became clear she wasn’t breathing, and performing a biopsy on her vocal cords.

The biopsy probably caused her airway to close in the first place, and shouldn’t have

Appeals Court: News Orgs Don’t Have to Remove Stories When Criminal Records Are Expunged

Myanmar Press Newspapers 2013 H

On Wednesday, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against a woman who had drug charges dropped against her and wiped from official records but couldn’t convince newspapers owned by the Hearst Corporation to remove or update stories about her.

Lorraine Martin sued for libel, claiming that although the articles were factually true at the time they were published, they became false once the charges were erased.

French Designer Uses N-Word for Latest Collection, Says Kayne Endorses Him 

“I made looks which are a cross-over of those two references: the Timberland shoes and the sweat pants are iconic of hip-hop, and the camel hair color coat, worn with nothing under it, is iconic of that precise movie,” Touitou wrote. “I am friends with Kanye [West, who recorded ‘N–gas in Paris’ with Jay Z], and he and I presented a joint collection at the same place, one year ago, and that this thing is only a homage to our friendship. As a matter of fact, when I came up with this idea, I wrote to him, with the picture of the look and the name I was giving to it, and he wrote back immediately saying something like, ’I love this vibe.’”
