A federal lawsuit has been filed against the Bellingham, Washington, Fire Department over the use of a dead body to practice intubation skills. The suit represents the fourth claim made by the family of Bradley Ginn Sr. over the July, 2018 incident.
Ginn’s brother, Robert Fox, filed the lawsuit last month is US District Court for the Western District of Washington. The suit alleges a single count of tortious interference with a corpse.
KMNO News is reporting that Fox’s suit is the fourth to be filed over the incident. However, I am not able to independently confirm that the other suits have been filed. Civil claims have been filed by Ginn’s widow Jai, ($15 Million), his son Bradley Ginn Jr. ($200,000), and his daughter Aurieona Ginn ($350,000), but to date I have not been able to find actual lawsuits.
According to KMNO, Bellingham has paid $75,000 each to Ginn’s children and still faces the $15 million claim by Jai.
