Wife of Eagles Star Glenn Frey Seeks Economic Loss of $12M Per Year In Med Mal Action

The wrongful death/medical malpractice claim brought by the widow of the famously popular music star Glenn Frey (member of the "Eagles" band) is battling with The Mount Sinai Hospital over disclosure of financial records related to her deceased husband's earnings. Frey passed away in January 2016, allegedly as a result of a failure to timely and properly treat ulcerative colitis, delay in managing infection and improperly prescribing Remicade, an immunosuppressant medication for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is claimed that these departures from accepted standards between October 2015 and January 2016, led to multisystem organ failure and the premature death of Glenn Frey at the age of 67.

The Estate of Frey is seeking recovery for pain/suffering and economic losses of $12,000,000 per year for each of the years Frey would have lived but for the malpractice. This claim has been limited to lost earnings for income derived solely from "performance fees and merchandising". Last week, The Mount Sinai Hospital filed a motion to dismiss the case because Ms. Frey allegedly refused to provide certain financial records which she believes are irrelevant. The Court must now decide how to fairly limit the defendant's request for financial records from the Estate. Cindy Frey v Steven Itzkowitz , The Mount Sinai Hospital, Sup. Ct., NY County, Index No. 805014/18
