Cardiologist Brain Damaged by ECT Denied Justice

A few weeks back I wrote about Dadi, a former cardiologist who was suing his psychiatrist for millions of dollars in damages for severe cognitive impairment Dadi suffered after a series of  ECT treatments.

white capped text on dark grey background reads “I HAD A VERY GOOD MEMORY BEFORE. I PRACTICED MEDICINE. I HAD THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS. I LOST IT ALL,” HE SAID. “THE MEMORY LOSS. THE ISOLATION I FEEL BECAUSE OF MY INABILITY TO INTERACT WITH OTHERS. THE INABILITY TO DRIVE. I THINK THE PROCEDURE CAUSED BRAIN DAMAGE AND I FEEL IT. EVERY DAY. EVERY DAY.” Dr. Shaul Dadi

“Instead of respecting all these ‘No, no, no, no,’ [from Dadi]. . . Dr. Dadi, with no written consent, goes for electroshock therapy,' La Vista said, [And] it doesn’t matter that there’s no written consent, because the oral consent is no good, either.'"

After a twelve day trial and  nearly four hours of jury deliberation, a devastating verdict was delivered to Dadi and his wife.

The psychiatrist that damaged his brain was cleared of all charges. He will continue to shock away people’s intelligence, memories, and abilities. If they are fortunate enough to have the resources to their grievances to court, a jury of their peers is sure to f#$% things up and the world continues on in blissful ignorance about the true abuses and hazards of electroshock.

 Read the full story here.

The shock machine manufacturers and the psychiatric industry remain completely unscathed by all of this.

Dadi is not the first and will not be the last shock survivor to get screwed over by our legal system.

This is a state of shock survivor lawsuits.

    • Judging from the paralegal case by Richard Warner, I’d imagine they do a fair amount a research before they form their legal strategy. It would be interesting to see how they formed theirs and what evidence they used. They even had Peter Breggin as an expert witness. Several factors seem to never change: mindsets that only mental but jobs get shocked, shock treatment is scientific and doctors are trustworthy. That mind set runs deep. And as far as the jurors know, it’s legal for the shock doc to treat even with a sorry excuse for consent provided– especially if it was to save this ‘crazy man’ from killing himself. Under those guidelines, it wasn’t unreasonable to say said shock doc didn’t do anything wrong coupled with all those internal biases– successful lawsuits are hard to even imagine. Unfortunately all the websites in the world filled with facts and data will fail to change deep set biases and beliefs. The shock industry and psychiatry have protected their interests with human tendencies and ignorance. They don’t even have to try 😡

  1. Oh wow Jane I was sure he would win! Justice is blind and there is simply no recourse. My friend recently boasted of how easy it was to lie in court. I hated hearing it since I can’t even get my foot into the courtroom. Wrong wrong wrong.
