A malpractice suit awards a Joplin woman one million dollars in damages. The medical malpractice suit against Dr. Arthur Daus was filed by Madonna Williams. Williams says Dr. Daus operated on the wrong nerve in her spine in August of 1991, a mistake that has plagued Williams for more than ten years. Williams also claims the doctor pierced the lining of her spine and caused a spinal fluid leak. A jury deliberated for more than four hours before siding with Williams.
