THE judge hearing the $20 million lawsuit against the Brian Lara Cancer Treatment Centre by the widow of businessman Ricardo “Smokey” McKenzie says she intends to deliver her ruling by the end of February or in early March. Justice Mira Dean-Armorer reserved her ruling on Tuesday at the end of submissions in the case.

McKenzie’s widow Lisa is claiming gross medical negligence, bribery and fraud by Medcorp Ltd and the Cancer Centre of the Caribbean Ltd, operators of BLCTC. The centre has not accepted any blame for McKenzie’s death and disputes any negligence on its part.

McKenzie died in December 2010 and his wife filed the case against the centre for medical expenses and $16 million for loss of earnings. Doctors who treated McKenzie in the US concluded he died as a result of radiation necrosis caused by a radiation overdose. McKenzie was being treated for brain cancer. Lisa McKenzie is represented by attorneys Terrence Bharath and Andre Le Blanc while Neil Bisnath represents the BLCTC.
