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 such lawsuits. Paul Gray died after overdosing on drugs on July 22, 2010. Brenna Gray filed her lawsuit on Feb. 14, 2014. Brenna Gray's lawyer said the statute of limitations shouldn't have started until Gray 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
