A reclusive copper heiress’ estate is seeking more than $100 million from a doctor and a hospital where she spent two decades, furthering a fight over her fortune after a feud over her disputed will was resolved.
Dr. Henry Singman and Beth Israel Medical Center were less dedicated to Huguette Clark’s welfare than their own, says a lawsuit filed on Thursday.
A public administrator’s office, a local government entity, represents the estate of Clark, whose father was a Montana copper baron and founded Las Vegas.
‘Beth Israel abandoned its duties and responsibilities when it learned that a very rich patient was in its eye,’ and Singman ‘placed his own interests above those of his patient,’ the lawsuit says.
Singman’s lawyer, Harold L. Schwab, called the lawsuit ‘outrageous’. The hospital’s lawyer, Lawrence Fox, declined to comment.
