Melissa Rivers Officially Sues Clinic Over Joan's Death
“The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible,” Melissa says in the lawsuit (via TMZ). “Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better.”
Not only has Melissa sued the clinic, she has also sued her mother’s personal doctor Gwen Korovin as she should never have been allowed in the room where the procedure was performed.
“Had doctors acted as physicians for Joan Rivers instead of groupies, Joan Rivers would have been doing Fashion Police last week,” said one family lawyer Jeffrey Bloom (via NY Daily News).
