The University of Cincinnati has agreed to pay $2.3 million to a southwestern Ohio woman who says she was left partially paralyzed after doctors failed to properly diagnose her.
The agreement ends a six-year legal battle between the university and Cynthia Adae of Midland, about 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati.
The then-50-year-old Adae sued the university in October 2007. She says doctors at Clinton Memorial Hospital failed to diagnose a sudden condition after she went in and had blood tests.
The university operates a residency program at the hospital.
The university denied the allegations in court documents, saying Adae's condition was the result of "intervening and superseding causes."
