Schuster suing doctors for damages

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster is suing two Bratislava hospitals for injuring his health when he had a ruptured colon that required his evacuation to Vienna two years ago. He is asking Sk450,000 ($10,500) in damages.

The president alleges that doctors at the hospital misdiagnosed his condition, and then botched an initial operation.
