Ortiz lawsuit against medical examiners, NAAG Pathology labs to continue

Posted:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A grandmother's lawsuit against the men and company running the Lubbock County Medical Examiner's Office will continue. 

Judge Ruben Reyes will not throw out Rebecca Ortiz's lawsuit. Ortiz sued Chief Medical Examiner Sam Andrews, Evan Matshes and NAAG Pathology Labs over an autopsy performed last fall. 

Ortiz claims the officer "disassembled" her child to benefit Matshes's research in San Diego. She used testimony from former office employees to support her claims. They suggest NAAG had policies to improperly harvest organs when it wasn't medically necessary. 

Judge Reyes find Ortiz has fully established her case on first impression using clear and specific evidence. 

Andrews has already filed a motion to appeal this case the the Seventh Court of Appeals in Amarillo.
