Civil suit related to Tupelo hospice probe dropped

OXFORD — Attorneys for two sisters and Sanctuary Hospice House and its former clinical director have agreed to dismissal of a wrongful death lawsuit.

The documents were filed in federal court in Oxford on Tuesday.

Casey Lott of Booneville, attorney for the plaintiffs, tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that all parties had agreed not to divulge any details to the media.

In 2008, Rebecca Dillard and Faye McLain sued Dr. Paul White, Marilyn Lehman and Sanctuary claiming they acted improperly in the death of the women’s mother, Esther Evans.

White was medical director and Lehman clinical director at Sanctuary when Evans died there in 2006.

The complaint against White was dismissed in 2009.
