Solon resident Jodi Creasap Gee had just relocated to the Cleveland area from Missouri with her husband and three kids when her 5-year-old daughter cut her foot. 

The house was still in disarray and the kids were playing when her daughter came into the kitchen screaming, Creasap Gee said.

“There was just a trail of blood behind her. Her foot’s all bloody and I’m going, ‘oh no.' I don’t even know where to go because we just moved here, and it’s a Sunday,” she said.

Lawyers representing couples affected by a storage freezer malfunction at University Hospitals' fertility clinic filed eight new lawsuits Thursday.  

The suits seek damages from UH and CAS DataLoggers, a company that was responsible for the alarm system involved in the freezer malfunction. The incident caused some 4,000 eggs and embryos to no longer be viable.

Though lawmakers didn’t address the issue after a set of lawsuits against a Cleveland hospital, one outgoing legislator is hoping his bill will move forward after he’s gone.
