Northwest Medical Center

$1.1 million has been awarded to Roy E. Lund in the civil suit he filed against Northwest Medical Center. Lund filed the lawsuit after claiming he had been falsely imprisoned at the hospital for more than seven days in 1993. On November 23, 1993, Lund's wife called the police, alleging that Lund had threatened her life. Lund was admitted for emergency mental examination and treatment against his will. According to the suit, "the allegations which were the basis for Lund's involuntary commitment were false," and state law required that he be discharged within five days. (Jun-17-03) [THE DERRICK]
