Hospital: No evidence that penis amputated there

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (AP) — A Birmingham hospital is disputing a man's account that his penis was amputated at its facility.

Johnny Lee Banks Jr. says in a lawsuit that he went to Princeton Baptist Medical Center last month for a circumcision that he says went horribly wrong.

In court documents, Princeton Baptist says there is no evidence that an amputation of Banks' penis occurred at the facility. The hospital is asking that it be dismissed from the suit.

An attorney for two doctors accused in the lawsuit of amputating Banks' penis also denied the allegations and asked that the lawsuit be dismissed.

The plaintiffs say the lawsuit filed July 22 is frivolous and designed to harm their reputations.

Banks' attorney, John Graves, has said he stands by the allegations and doesn't file frivolous lawsuits.
