Lawsuit over Slipknot bassist's death dismissed

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A judge says the widow of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray waited too long to file a lawsuit against Gray's former doctor. The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/1s9iTxQ ) Polk County District Judge Dennis Stovall ruled earlier this week to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Brenna Gray against Dr. Daniel Baldi. Stovall said plaintiffs have up to two years to file. Paul Gray died of an overdose in July 2010; Brenna Gray filed her suit on Feb. 14, 2014, accusing Baldi of failing to help her husband overcome his drug addictions. Gray's lawyer said the statute of limitations shouldn't have started until she had reason to believe Baldi caused her husband's death. The judge disagreed. Baldi was acquitted May 1 of involuntary manslaughter in connection with several patient deaths, including Paul Gray. ___ Information from: The Des Moines Register, http://www.desmoinesregister.com
