abcnews.go.com The University of Toledo Medical Center admits a nurse threw away a teen's kidney before it could be transplanted into his sister last year, but nevertheless is asking a state court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family. UTMC eventually was able to arrange another kidney for Sarah A. Fudacz, and she had a successful operation in Denver last November.

"They are admitting they threw the kidney away, but they are not admitting substandard medical care," Fudacz family lawyer James E. Arnold told ABCNews.com. "They must think that it is within standard care to throw a kidney away," Arnold said.

It's obvious to everyone but the university -- in all fairness." to read more click here: abcnews.go.com
