Patrick Brunson of Floyd County today lost his two-million dollar lawsuit against Spine Surgeon, Dr. Eric Korsh.

The jury apparently, did not agree.

Patrick Brunson's case against Korsh centered around his claims that the doctor, then with Lewis Gale Clinic's Virginia Spine Center-- told him he had to have bone fusion surgery using pedicel screws-- or he'd be paralyzed.
With the surgery, though-- he'd be pain-free.
Dr. Korsh denies making any such promises.

RUNS=:10
OUT Q=be handled.


Both sides speculate that the relationship between Brunson and Korsh may have had some impact on the jury.
The two were friends, until a horse venture went under-- Korsh eventually dropped a lawsuit against Brunson to recoup money-- before this suit was filed.
There was also this video that the defense hired a private investigator to make-- in it, Brunson is seen working on his Copper Hill horse farm-- doing just what he'd been saying he could no longer do.
