Closing arguments delayed Brooks’ lawsuit against hospital

The judge and lawyers in Garth Brooks’ lawsuit against an Oklahoma hospital have been meeting to hammer out what jurors should consider as they deliberate the case.

CLAREMORE, Okla. — The judge and lawyers in Garth Brooks’ lawsuit against an Oklahoma hospital have been meeting to hammer out what jurors should consider as they deliberate the case.

Brooks wants the Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital to return a $500,000 donation, saying it reneged on a pledge to name a women’s centre after his late mother. The hospital says the gift was unconditional.

Both sides rested their cases Monday after Brooks concluded his testimony and two defence witnesses took the stand briefly.
