NC court allows negligence case to continue

A North Carolina appeals court has overturned a previous decision in the case of a negligence lawsuit filed after man's death following dental surgery in 2008, according to an Associated Press news story.

Two of the three judges on the Court of Appeals panel did not side with Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, two dentists, and others in the case of Robert Webb III. Wake died two days after undergoing oral surgery and other dental procedures under general anesthesia.

The case could now go to the state Supreme Court, the story concluded.
