Closing arguments set in country music star Garth Brooks' lawsuit against Okla. hospital
CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) ' Closing arguments have been scheduled in country music star Garth Brooks' lawsuit against an Oklahoma hospital he claims reneged on a pledge to name a women's center after his late mother in return for a $500,000 donation.
Both sides rested their cases Monday after Brooks concluded his testimony and two defense witnesses took the stand briefly.
Rogers County District Judge Dynda Post set closing arguments for Tuesday morning and told jurors they should expect to stay late to resolve the case.
Brooks filed the lawsuit against Integris (in-TEHG-rihs) Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in 2009, seeking a return of the donation. Colleen Brooks died of cancer in 1999.
The hospital has said the donation was an "unconditional" gift and it did nothing wrong when it didn't name the facility after her.
