The New York Daily News reports that a new wrongful death suit has been filed against Lederman after he reportedly treated a patient, Giuseppa Bono, for cancer when she may have never actually had the disease. Apparently, Bono told Lederman and Dr. Philip Silverman that she was diagnosed in Italy with pancreatic cancer, but it was never confirmed. The 34-year-old mother of three received two radiation treatments and died in 2003, most likely from inflammation of the pancreas.
The original court documents filed also made another claim: that Lederman invoked Harrison's name when convincing Bono to accept his treatment.
"If with all his money George Harrison came to me for his cancer treatment, when he could go anywhere in the world, that should be a lesson to you," Lederman is alleged to have told Bono. Whether or not that happened, Judge Leo Glasser ruled that Lederman's history with Harrison, as well as that quote, cannot be brought up in the Bono case. In the original Harrison suit, Lederman was accused of bringing his family to Harrison's hospital room and having his 12-year-old son perform for the dying Beatle as well as guiding his hand to sign the guitar.
