$23.8 million was awarded to the family of a baby girl who suffered cerebral palsy following a traumatic delivery at the hands of two Massachusetts obstetricians in 1996. It was alleged that the doctors did not notice that the babyís head was tilted and was thus unable to fit through the motherís pelvis. The baby was removed with a vacuum extractor after 17 hours of labor. The parents were not made aware of the risk of brain damage.
