The widow of late-Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey is seeking $12 million from the doctor she blames for her husband's death. Friday (January 18th) will mark the third anniversary of Frey's death at age 67 in New York City due to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. Frey's widow and the mother of his three children, Cindy Frey, is seeking $12 million from gastroenterologist Dr. Steven Itzkowitz for lost earnings to her family due to Glenn's death. She claims that in 2015 -- the year before Frey's death -- Itzkowitz was negligent in treating the Glenn's ulcerative colitis.
PageSix.com reported Cindy Frey's suit puts forth that "the doctor failed to 'promptly and properly assess the patient for respiratory issues and ignored an infection.' As a result of his death, his family was deprived of his care, guidance and support, and they have suffered pecuniary damage." The report states that Itzkowitz believes that Frey could not have earned another $12 million had he lived passed 67. The case is due back in court this week.
