Winkfield sued, but after an independent medical examination, the judge ruled that Jahi was deceased and allowed a death certificate to be issued. He also played Solomon, and worked out a settlement whereby Children’s Hospital transferred Jahi to her relatives while still on life support. We now know, she was moved to New Jersey, where she remains today.
At the time, I believed Jahi was dead, and so wrote. But I also wrote that if she did not deteriorate as almost all people with properly determined brain death do, my eyebrows would raise.
Since then, Jahi has not deteriorated, but apparently, her body’s condition has improved. My eyebrows are above my hairline.
Please go read the rest– especially the details that the symptoms of brain-death offered were, apparently, actually symptoms of maltreatment.
