Gaza war update: 31 premature babies were transferred from Gaza's Al-Shifa hospital to another in the South. Those 'very sick' babies are currently in Rafah and will be transported to Egypt on Monday. The Associated Press reports the infants suffered from dehydration, hypothermia, and even sepsis. The Palestinian Red Crescent and UN agencies evacuated the babies to a safer location.
Maya Kowalski and her family just won a landmark judgment against Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in the amount of $261 million dollars for false imprisonment, battery, and a litany of other injustices. You can read the details of that via the link. But something that came out in the trial outside of the presence of the jury, which wasn't allowed in as evidence, was Maya's testimony that she was sexually assaulted by someone dressed as a doctor while she was being held away from her family in the pediatric intensive care unit. The allegation was not allowed into the trial because it wasn't in the original lawsuit due to Maya disclosing the incident to her attorney after the action was filed. Maya's attorney, Greg Anderson, says they have now filed a criminal complaint against JHACH officially with the police for that assault.Maya told Judge Carroll that she was alone in her room in the PICU when a man with dirty blonde hair wearing glasses and a white coat came into her room and said he needed to "take a peek." He then lowered her pants and underwear and stared at her vagina for a long time which made her feel scared. Maya's parents weren't allowed into the hospital to visit with her except under supervision by a social worker, Cathi Bedy, who also was found by the jury to have intentionally harmed Maya.
Anderson was interviewed about the new complaint here:
"I can tell everyone that today Maya Kowalski went to the Pinellas County Sherriff's department with my partner Nick Whitney and swore out a criminal complaint against Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital," he said. "I want to be clear that we have not been able to identify a specific perpetrator there," added Anderson. It could have been a staff member, he said, "but it very well could have been someone who snuck in there."
Anderson said one of the ways JHACH put Maya at risk of such an assault was to treat her like a "non-entity." The other children in the ward had families with them all the time and identifiers on the door with their names and decorations while Maya's room was marked with mysterious color-coded stickers with no nametag. The lack of similarity to the other rooms marked her room as occupied by someone who didn't have familial protection and was a target for a pedophile.
Just when you thought this case could not get worse, it does.

It's official. Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital has been found liable for the medical kidnapping of Maya Kowalski, medical malpractice, billing fraud, and driving Beata Kowalski to suicide. In a groundbreaking decision, a Florida jury found the hospital liable for every charge brought forward by the plaintiffs and awarded compensatory damages in the amount of just over $211 million. Then they awarded $50 million in punitive damages against the hospital that colluded with DCS to falsely imprison a medically complex child over false allegations that her mother had Munchausen by Proxy.
There's never been a victory like this before in civil court. Most medical malpractice suits never make it to trial, and this one included the novel cause of action, the intentional infliction of emotional distress that caused the death of Beata Kowalski. The question posed to the jurors on that count is one that will certainly be appealed but survived this jury's bar for liability, and it read as follows:
Did Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, through the acts of its employees, engage in extreme and outrageous conduct, intending that conduct to cause, or with reckless disregard of the high probability of causing, severe emotional distress to Beata Kowalski that was sufficient to be a legal cause of Beata Kowalski's death by suicide?
The answer was a resounding yes. The jury found that the conduct by JHACH created in Beata an uncontrollable impulse to die by suicide, and that conduct was a substantial factor in her death. On just that one count the jury awarded around $104 million.
This is the first time this kind of claim has prevailed in a civil case. The rest of the claims included false imprisonment, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraudulent billing, and medical negligence. The jury was unanimous and they dropped the hammer on JHACH. My only regret is there wasn't a count for the religious discrimination the family suffered.
Whether the Kowalskis will see any of the money for years to come is unknown. JHACH is sure to tie them up in appeals courts on the wrongful death claim if not others. However, their actions and the consequences of them have been fully aired in the public and no amount of appeal decisions in their favor will repair JHACH's reputation it has earned as child abusers.
Maya Kowalski suffers from a rare pain disease called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), which the hospital refused to believe and instead accused her mother of falsifying her illness. Even after separating Beata from Maya, she didn't get better, yet the hospital continued to keep the family apart. The hospital was fighting in dependency court to ship Maya thousands of miles away from her family to be housed in "medical foster care."
This type of situation happens to more people in this country than you would want to believe. Rachel Bruno, Drake Pardo, Justina Pelletiere, and Cynthia Abcug are just a few of the cases I've covered here on PJ Media, some of whom have never seen justice for the horrific family-destroying acts perpetrated on them.
This win for the Kowalskis is a win for every family who has ever been falsely accused by an out-of-control medical staff of being a child abuser. Perhaps this huge judgment will reverberate through hospitals that their priority should be to "do no harm" and treat their patients instead of investigating them. One can hope that the insidious partnership between hospitals and malicious state agencies that claim to protect children will cease after this.
While Maya's nightmare is finally over, a bigger nightmare is beginning for JHACH. A new lawsuit has been filed against them for similar claims. The Kushnir family is suing JHACH and Dr. Sally Smith, the child abuse doctor who kidnapped Maya from her family, with the same lawyers who just won what was called an unwinnable case.
In a 57-page petition, the Kushnirs allege medical malpractice, negligent hiring, and supervision of its doctors, abuse of process, malicious prosecution, intentional interference with the custodial parent-child relationship, and civil conspiracy. Many of the same doctors involved in Maya's kidnapping are named in the suit.
The lawsuit includes shocking allegations including false allegations of sexual abuse.
Based upon the misrepresentations and bad faith allegations of the Defendants, William and Adele were removed from their parents' care and custody for approximately three months, William's condition worsened at the hands of Bayfront Health, JHACH, and their involved physicians and other healthcare providers, and Vadim and Elina were subjected to the Defendants' physical abuse, sexual abuse, and medical neglect misrepresentations and allegations.
JHACH has been hiding some very dark things that thanks to attorneys Greg Anderson and Nick Whitney are all coming out into the light. If you watched Court TV's coverage, though, you'd think Maya Kowalski was a liar. It has been absolutely awful. But anyone with a brain can see that where there is smoke there is fire.
There are a reported 300 families that USA Today has been looking into who may have been similarly abused by Dr. Sally Smith. This verdict was a resounding vindication for parents who have less and less rights to their children, their education, and their medical care. America has had enough of this tyranny and the perpetrators are going to be held accountable now.
What should happen next is a state investigation into Dr. Sally Smith, JHACH, and the Department of Child and Family Services, and if found to have engaged in criminal acts, they should face jail time. The House of Representatives in Florida also needs to remove immunity from hospitals and DCF when they use the power granted by the state to abuse the citizenry like this.
Let's go, people. Now is the time to make this a reality.

A Gaza hospital was hit by a botched rocket strike from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which the IDF verified on Tuesday. The exact number of fatalities is still unknown.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad works alongside Hamas, aligning against Israel.
Despite claims made by Hamas and several other nations, the IDF claimed to have numerous intelligence sources that proved Islamic Jihad, not Israel, was to blame for the attack.
“The entire world should know: It was barbaric terrorists in Gaza that attacked the hospital in Gaza and not the IDF. Those who brutally murdered our children also murder their own children,” Netanyahu declared on Tuesday.
Before confirming their security evaluation and claiming that PIJ was in fact the facilitator of the explosion, the IDF took two hours to investigate and confirm the details.
“An analysis of IDF operational systems indicates that a barrage of rockets was fired by terrorists in Gaza, passing in close proximity to the Al Ahli hospital in Gaza at the time it was hit,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.
The number of casualties, according to Gaza officials, ranged from “dozens to hundreds,” and video footage from the site showed a number of vehicles going up in flames close to the hospital.
The explosion was reported while intense rocket fire from Gaza was being directed into central Israel.
In the Gaza Strip, missile storage facilities are frequently located within or close to hospitals, schools, and mosques as Hamas and other Palestinian organizations launch rockets from within civilian areas.
In previous times of warfare, many fatalities were reported in similar events when rockets fired by Islamic groups hit structures in Gaza, frequently missing their true target.
During Operation Breaking Dawn in August 2022, two individuals were killed when a missile shot from Gaza collided with a clinic.
Four Palestinians were also murdered in May when an Islamic Jihad missile missed its target. The IDF made video available of the incident’s unsuccessful launches.
However, Hamas still accused Israel of being the perpetrators of the rocket launches, and a number of Democrats and leftist Congress members, like Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), chimed in with the false narrative.
“We call on the international community and the Arab and Islamic countries to assume their responsibilities and intervene immediately now to stop the arrogance of the occupation and its fascist army,” Hamas said in a statement.
“What is taking place is genocide. We call on the international community to intervene immediately to stop this massacre. Silence is no longer acceptable,” read a statement issued by the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
There are livestreams online showing feeds from Gaza City, Jerusalem, and Ashdod. The rocket fire occurred from 19:59:00 until 20:00:11.
