A private healthcare surgeon in the UK has been sued for compensation by a patient, Mr R. Bloch, who alleges that the surgeon accidentally removed his left testicle while conducting laparascopic surgery to remove a gall stone.
During the initial hearing, the judge asked whether any corroborating evidence was available. The patient's solicitor produced a small glass jar, placed it on the judge's bench and declared: "Your Honour, the ball is in your court."
