MIAMI—The Associated Press reported today that a Miami federal judge ruled in favor of a veteran who claims that he received hepatitis from a colonoscopy at a Veterans Administration hospital.
"Metzler was one of thousands of veterans in five states to receive letters from the VA in 2009 urging them to get blood tests after being treated," the AP reported. "The VA contended in court it did not cause Metzler's infection and should not pay damages. Many similar cases have been filed around the country."
