Garth Wins Lawsuit Against Hospital

A jury in Claremore, Oklahoma has spoken and the Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in Yukon, Oklahoma  must return a $500,000 donation to Garth Brooks because it failed to build a women’s health center in honor of Garth Brooks late mother Colleen Brooks.

Brooks cut an initially anonymous 500,000 check in 2005 and  Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital had argued that there were no restrictions on the donation and only later did Brooks come up with the women’s center idea. But a jury on Tuesday night saw it differently, The jury began deliberating Tuesday afternoon in Rogers County District Court, and the judge told jurors she wanted them to work as late as midnight to come to a decision.

During the trial, Garth Brooks testified that he thought he had a solid agreement with Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital on what he wanted done with the money and Garth went on the say that the hospital president initially suggested putting his mother’s name on an intensive care unit, and when Brooks said that wouldn’t fit her image,  the Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital President suggested a women’s center to which Garth agreed.
