Jury: Local doctor at fault in malpractice suit

A Cowley County jury Thursday found Ark City Dr. Aaron T. Watters to be 100 percent at fault at the conclusion of a medical malpractice trial that lasted for about three weeks.

The jury ordered Watters to pay just over $65,000 in past medical expenses and $35,000 in pain and suffering to Alicha Scott, an Ark City woman who developed an infection after surgery in 2011. The money awarded was substantially less than what Scott and her attorneys had been seeking when they filed suit.
