Kate Ferlic is representing sexual assault victim Jill McLaughlin in a lawsuit against Christus St. Vincent. McLaughlin was a patient at St. Vincent in September 2019 for a neck procedure where she was was numbed from the neck down to her arms while being conscious. The suit states McLaughlin was strapped face down on a surgical table and was unable to move her arms or her head. After the 45 minute procedure, McLaughlin was left alone with a male whom placed her hand on his genitals and began rubbing.
