Charlie Weis takes losing badly

After losing his malpractice case, he fires a few parting shots:

He added: “In my case, obesity nearly led to death. Corrective major surgery always has risks, but a patient should never be viewed as the bad guy when problems occur that could be prevented. Never let doctors blame you for having elective surgery as they get paid handsomely and have the right to refuse.”

Weis also accused jurors of growing “tired and bored” through the trial. “I realized victory was a long shot but was still surprised with the verdict,” he said.
