Rhonda McCullough, the widow of late funnyman Bernie Mac, has filed a wrongful death suit against Dr. Rene M. Earles, a Chicago dermatologist who'd treated Mac. Mac passed away on August 9, 2008 -exactly two years ago to the day- of heart failure after suffering from pneumonia. He'd also been suffering from sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease, for quite some time as well.
Are you wondering how a dermatologist factors into this? Well, the Widow Mac's suit alleges that the doctor failed to recognize how severe Mac's cardiopulmonary distress was during an office visit three weeks prior to his death. The doctor disputed the allegations to the Chicago Sun-Times, saying that he believes he treated Mac properly and to the best of his ability.
This appears to be a "he said, she said" case this will have to play out in the courts.
