The front-page feature article in today’s issue of Minnesota Lawyer reports on a civil rights wrongful death action that the Kosieradzki Smith Law Firm has brought against Ramsey County.
The Kosieradzki Smith Law Firm is honored to represent the family of Theresa “Toots” Rotter in their mission to hold the Ramsey County Care Center accountable for the wrongful death of their loved one. Ms. Rotter died while in the care of the county-owned Maplewood nursing home.
The law suit includes legal claims that the county nursing home violated Ms. Rotter’s civil rights. Kosieradzki Smith filed the suit Monday in federal court in Minnesota against the Ramsey County Care Center, two top administrators, and the unidentified employee who served Ms. Rotter her last meal.
Minnesota Lawyer quotes Mark Kosieradzki: “You need to have systems in place for the delivery of therapeutic diets. It’s no different than a system for delivering medication. It has to deliver like the doctor prescribed it. They had a known, failing system and, for whatever reason, they chose not to fix it.”
