We were interviewed on March 20, 2001 by Penthouse reporter Sharon Taxin, for an article regarding William Stowell’s lawsuit against the doctor and hospital that amputated his foreskin during infancy.
Stowell is not suing for medical malpractice. No one claims that the physician negligently performed the circumcision. The suit is for battery, defined as an “offensive touching” under the law, for performing the procedure that was not medically necessary, and for fraud, claiming that the surgery was done without proper consent.
