Judge Orders Mandatory Settlement Conference Over Brain Dead Oakland Teen
Posted Thursday, January 2nd 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News

A federal magistrate will meet Friday with lawyers for a California hospital and a 13-year-old girl who was declared brain dead after tonsil surgery.

A judge today ordered representatives of Children's Hospital Oakland and the family of Jahi McMath to attend the mandatory settlement conference and try to avoid going to trial.

The hospital maintains that Jahi is legally dead and that the ventilator keeping her heart pumping should be removed.  The girl's mother wants to transfer her to another facility.
