New Brunswick:  A class action lawsuit will be initiated against pathologist Dr. Menon who was suspended in 2007 from his position at the Miramichi Regional Hospital for thousands of partial or full misdiagnoses between 1995 and 2007.

The Miramichi Regional Health Authority has been allowed to go ahead by the New Brunswick Court of Appeal. The lawsuit against Dr. Rajgopal Menon and the health authority was filed by three former patients, and about 100 people had signed up for the class action.
