In a case that some analysts say may impact the ongoing debate over same-sex marriage, a Connecticut jury has awarded more than $1 million to the partner of a woman whose substandard cancer treatment led to a loss of consortium. For several years, Margaret Mueller’s cancer was misdiagnosed, leading to surgery that unnecessarily removed part of her colon and intestines. She died in 2009. Although Mueller’s partner’s claim was initially denied, it was later validated with a $1.3 million jury award on appeal.
