A man was taken to hospital after experiencing severe back and hip pain and numbness and weakness in one leg. A herniated disc was diagnosed but surgery showed there were no herniated discs. The surgeon then proceeded to biopsy the nerve root which turned out to be normal. The man sued the surgeon for operating on a condition that was nonexistent and for performing a procedure (nerve root biopsy) without authorization. The jury awarded the man $1.077 million.
