Campbell v. Sorbara

Campbell v. Sorbara

September 30, 1988

Richard Bogoroch represented plaintiff Marlene Campbell in a case involving damages related to a tubal ligation procedure.

Campbell v. Sorbara

[1988] O.J. No. 1600

September 30, 1988.

The Honourable Justice Matlow

Reasons for Decision

The plaintiff brings this action for damages by reason of a right tubal ligation performed on her during the course of a caesarian section by the defendant, Donna M. Steele, under the direction of the defendant, Vincent James Sorbara, on March 4, 1985.

[. . .]

I have come to the conclusion that the plaintiff’s complaint is justified and that she is entitled to succeed in this action. What follows are some of my findings of fact which have led me to this conclusion. [. . .] The written consent which the plaintiff signed before undergoing the procedure referred only to a repeat caesarian section which is what the plaintiff expected to undergo. There was nothing in this document which referred to a tubal ligation.
