The family of the late saxophonist Clarence Clemons is suing the doctors who treated the musician prior to his death. Clemons, the longtime sax player for Bruce Springsteen and who appeared on Lady Gaga's "The Edge of Glory," died in 2011 after suffering complications from a stroke. His surviving relatives have filed suit against physicians and executives of the Palm Beach Cancer Center in Palm Beach, Florida.
Robert J. Jacobson, David W. Dodson and Keith Meyer are accused of failing to give Clemons, 71, the proper blood-thinning medication prior to hand surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, shortly before his death. They claim that critical mistake led to Clemons' stroke.
The Palm Beach Cancer Center is also named in the suit, due to the allegations that Clemons' widow Victoria found her husband lying on the floor of the clinic "confused and dysarthric (unable to speak properly)" the day after the surgery.
