Prince's Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Hospital

Following an announcement by investigators that there would be no criminal charges in the death of Prince, the singer's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit. According to documents obtained by Rolling Stone, the suit argues that Trinity Medical Center failed to appropriately investigate and treat Prince's April 2016 overdose. The estate also accuses doctor Nicole Mancha and a Jane Doe employee, both named in the lawsuit, of misidentifying the Fentanyl pill Prince had taken prior to his overdose. “Prince's family wishes, through its investigation, to shed additional light on what happened to Prince,” family attorney John Goetz says in a statement. “At the same time, further light on the opiate epidemic will hopefully help the fight to save lives. If Prince's death helps save lives, then all was not lost." The family also blames two Walgreens locations in Minnesota of "dispensing narcotic prescription medications" to the singer for an invalid medical purpose.
