'Italian stallion’: Australian woman sues hospital for loss of sex after partner dies
Cara Ann Flower is suing Queensland Health in Australia for $1.2million AUD ($858,829 USD) for nervous shock and loss of “consortium” (sex). Her partner Jamie-Thomas Manuele died in 2018 after being left brain dead at Brisbane Hospital in Australia in 2013.Also on rt.com Australia to reopen notorious migrant detention center after govt. fails to block medevac bill
His mother Daphne Finnegan enthusiastically supports Flower’s pursuit, even going so far as to joke about her son’s sexual prowess. “If we're talking about conjugal rights he’d be worth about $3million, he’s an Italian stallion, mate,” she told Channel Nine News.
The family has received $10 million in damages already, after the hospital paid out for failing to treat Manuele properly. The staff didn’t conduct a key test that could have saved him. About $8 million of that is left and is in a trust for his children when they turn 25.Also on rt.com Ill Italian woman sues hospital for €211k after failed abortion results in baby she can’t afford
Cara is one of a number of Jamie’s relatives making claims. Five other family members have sought damages against the hospital. Jamie’s brother has been offered $323,000 to settle, his uncle is seeking $215,000 and his grandmother and stepfather are seeking $80,000.
