Settlement reached for $175,000 just before malpractice trial begins The jury never had a chance. In a recess following selection of a 12-member District Court jury to hear a $1.5 million medical malpractice lawsuit, the case was settled Tuesday for $175,000. Puzzled expressions, and a few smiles, crossed the Jurors' faces as Judge David Knudson told them they would not be spending most of the week in the courtroom after all. The trial had been expected to run for three or four days. The case, filed by Margaret Pollman Carlson, McPherson, against Dr. Bernard Brungardt, 400 E. Beloit, alleged the defendant's malpractice led to the death of her husband, David B. Pollman. Pollman, a truck driver, suffered arm and leg fractures Nov. 20, 1978, in an accident on the job. The accident happened in Emporia, but Pollman was brought to Salina's Asbury Hospital for surgery. While on the operating table, Pol- Iman's heart stopped. He died three days later. In her lawsuit, the plaintiff alleged Dr. Brungardt, an anesthesiologist, inserted an endotracheal tube too far into the patient so that it entered the mainstem of his right lung, causing Pollman's death. She claimed damages of $1.5 million. Brungardt claimed death was from pneumonia unrelated to the placement of the tube. After the jury was excused, Jerry Levy, Topeka, one of Mrs. Pollman's lawyers, said the two sides were within $25,000 of a settlement when the trial began. During the recess, Levy said, the defense agreed to the plaintiff's $175,000 settlement offer. Levy said a formal dismissal of the lawsuit would be filed with the court. Although they heard no evidence, jurors chosen were: Aldon L. BoMs. 1003 Osage: Aaron W. Dan- lelson. 631 Jaran; Dennis D. Gillberg, 515 Berkshire; Lynn Grabner, 516 Brown; Kay E. Keller, 2060 Edward; Deanno L. Killen, Assaria; Deborah D. Klein, 1214 Sarah lane; Linda C. Magalhan, 641 Highland; Jolene F. Peterson, Salina Rt. 1: James A. Samples, 232 E. Minneapolis; Louise N. Sorenson, Salina Rl. 5; Arlen D. Sutton, 1100 Greeley. To honor six students AAarymount Weekend festivities set Varied activities are planned for the annual Marymount Weekend this Saturday and Sunday. The event is scheduled annually in November to commemorate the accreditation of the college by the Kansas State Board of Education in 1927. A highlight is the selection of three men and three women seniors to receive recognition awards. Their selection replaces the longtime practice until 1977 of choosing a "Miss Marymount." The six recipients are chosen by election according to the qualities of spirituality, scholarship, leadership, loyalty and cooperation. The festivities begin at 1 p.m. Satur- day with the first annual "Laugh Olympics" in Smoot Gym. Team events such as relay races and tug-of- wars will be featured. They are sponsored by the Campus Program Council. The traditional Marymount Weekend Mass is set for 5 p.m. in the college chapel, celebrated by the Rev. LeRoy Metro, Marymount chaplain. The six award winners will be announced at the beginning of the Mass. An Hawaiian Luau buffet banquet will begin at 6 p.m. in the college dining room. The cost for non-Marymount student residents is $4. Following the banquet will be the multi-media musical-photographic concert, "I Saw the Wind," at 8 p.m. in the Little Theater. An informal dance begins at 9:30 in the Fine Arts ballroom, with music by "Phase Four." Concluding the weekend activities will be a concert Sunday at 8 p.m. in the college chapel by the Marymount choir, conducted by David Rayl, Marymount music department chairman. It is open to the public at no charge. Another school activity scheduled prior to the weekend is a student hayrack ride, beginning at 0:30 p.m. Thursday from the Marymount lower parking lot. It is sponsored by the Marymount Newman Ministries. Advisors for Marymount Weekend are Dr. Todd Reynolds, dean of students, and Ginny Booker, director of housing and student activities.
