A cardiologist was found liable for failing to warn his patient to avoid strenuous physical activity. Shortly thereafter, the decedent engaged in strenuous activity — a “threesome.” The patient died in the act.
The jury awarded the decedent’s family $5 million. However, the jury decided that the decedent was 40 percent responsible for his own death by participating in the sex act, thereby reducing the award by $2 million.
Morals obviously still play an important and expensive role to juries here in the south, although less than some might have thought given the facts of this case.
