The Eagles: Glenn Frey wrongful death lawsuit update

The doctor and hospital that treated Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey are denying any responsibility for his death in their response to his widow’s wrongful death lawsuit.

Cindy Frey recently filed the suit against Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan over the January 18, 2016 passing of her late husband, accusing the hospital and gastroenterologist Steven Itzkowitz of negligence for failing to properly treat the rocker’s ulcerative colitis, diagnose and treat infection, and advise of the risks and side effects from treatment.

The complaint alleges that as a result of the negligence, “Glenn Frey was rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled,” and suffered pain and mental anguish prior to his death from what The Eagles announced as “complications from acute ulcerative colitis, pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis.”

According to The Blast, the latest documents in the case see Mount Sinai Hospital and Dr. Steven Itzkowitz claim that “the injuries of the plaintiff were caused in whole or in part by the culpable conduct of the plaintiff” while seeking to have the case dismissed.

The late rocker’s career is being celebrated in a new 4-disc box set, “Above The Clouds: The Collection.”

Due for release on May 11, the 3CD/DVD package compiles the key elements of Frey's music both before and after The Eagles became international superstars, showcasing the broad range and wide influence of the Detroit-bred singer-songwriter in the process.

Frey’s son, Deacon, is now on the road with The Eagles as they play dates on an extensive 2018 North American tour that recently opened in Indianapolis, IN.
