The University of Illinois Board of Trustees will be advised today to sign off on nearly $14 Million in settlements concerning two cases. The first case involves the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago’s failure to perform an emergency delivery that resulted in permanent brain damage to an infant. The settlement in that case, if approved, would be $9 Million. The second case involves the failure to treat jaundice in a premature infant, the result of which was brain damage from high very levels of bilirubin. That case’s settlement is expected to be $4.8 Million. University officials have recommended approval of the settlements.
