    Re: Sues hospital for being taken home by the wrong mother

    As an adopted person, I have nothing for contempt for this woman. To me, our parents are who raise you; who love you and who stand by you and to sue the hospital at this late date dishonors the parents who raised her.

    But I'm not one to let my feelings fester. What's done, is done.

    Re: Sues hospital for being taken home by the wrong mother

    The woman is suing for emotional distress. However, the woman claims that she wishes that she had never found out about the mistake. So therefore her emotional distress resulted from being told about the mistake? If so, should the hospital have with held the truth?

    Re: Sues hospital for being taken home by the wrong mother

    Actually all three women are suing the hospital....

    BBC NEWS | Europe | Spain twins sue over birth mix-up

    And if you believe that this story is unique, it isn't; a set of twin boys has suffered a similar fate:

    Re: Sues hospital for being taken home by the wrong mother

    When saying that she wished she had never found out, slapping down a lawsuit certainly won't help her emotionally. Like most lawsuits this reeks of greed and not emotional distress.
