Second opinion planned for Oakland teen declared brain dead


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The family of a Northern California girl on life support after being declared brain dead was expected to appear with hospital officials in court Monday to announce the name of the independent physician they have chosen to provide a second opinion on the girl's condition. Jahi McMath's family obtained an order Friday from Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo to keep doctors at Children's Hospital Oakland from removing Jahi from a ventilator. Grillo ordered the family to meet with doctors Monday to select a neurologist to evaluate the teen.

In its court memorandum, the hospital said it has no duty to maintain life support because Jahi's condition is irreversible. The family says the girl bled profusely after a routine tonsillectomy. She then went into cardiac arrest before being declared brain dead Dec. 12.
