Broadnax v. Gonzalez, 2 N.Y.3d 148, 809 N.E.2d 645, 777 N.Y.S.2d 416 (N.Y. 2004)

In 2004, Margaret Jasper successfully argued a case before the New York Court of Appeals, which gives mothers of babies who are stillborn due to medical negligence the right to bring a legal action and recover emotional distress damages. This successful appeal overturned a 26-year old New York case precedent, which previously prevented mothers of stillborn babies to sue their negligent medical providers.
