Chief White Owl Won

The Palm Beach Post reported on the judge's order denying a new trial for the owners of Lake Worth Manor nursing home.  Last year, the owners were ordered to pay nearly $2 million to the family of a former patient — marking one of the largest jury awards statewide for a wrongful death case involving a nursing home.  In November, after a week-long trial, the case ended with a jury ordering them to pay $1,775,000 to Dahmer’s family and company officials vowing to appeal.

They filed a motion for a new trial with Circuit Judge Robin Rosenberg, but Rosenberg rejected the petition.  Dahmer’s family, meanwhile, has started an online petition at aimed at forging nursing home reform in the state — a goal Dahmer’s widow Patricia said was her chief aim in suing the facility.
