Guam - The U.S. Supreme Court will hear an appeal filed by a Guam resident who is suing the U.S. Government. In 2003 Steven Levin was scheduled to receive eye surgery at Naval Hospital in Agana Heights, just moments before the procedure he withdrew his consent but the doctors proceeded anyway. Levin suffered complications, which require ongoing treatment. He took the matter to court suing for medical malpractice and battery. The courts threw out the malpractice charge but upheld the battery charge. However, the 9th circuit court of appeals ruled the government is also immune from being sued for battery. The court will now review that decision. Levin, meanwhile, filed his appeal pro-se or without an attorney.
