Court records were filed on Monday requesting that trial attorney, former U.S. senator and former presidential candidate John Edwards be added to a wrongful death lawsuit against Vanderbilt University Medical Center, the Tennessean reports. Edwards intends to represent the family of a woman who died at Vanderbilt in 2017 in the lawsuit, which seeks $45 million and might include allegations of falsified medical records. Before launching into politics, Edwards began his legal career in Nashville at the firm of Dearborn & Ewing in 1978 and later became a well-known trial attorney in North Carolina. He is not currently licensed in Tennessee, but Afsoon Hagh, the current attorney on the case, has asked the court to add Edwards to the suit. The case is set to be heard this summer.
