My wife, Kara Hadican Samuels, is a very excellent plaintiff’s attorney. She has been on the news this week regarding the In vitro fiasco at the Ochsner Foundation Fertility Clinic in the New Orleans area. Ochsner called a press conference on Friday and admitted that they had mislabeled and mishandled a number of embryos in their in vitro clinic and have shut down the facility indefinitely. Kara filed the first case, a class action lawsuit against Ochsner on behalf of her clients back in July. In the past couple days she has been interviewed on WWL (CBS), WDSU (NBC), WVUE Fox 8, NBC Nightly News, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today Show. She also interviewed with the Times-Picayune, and CNN. I’m proud of her. Here are links to a few of them:
