I wrote about a very important case in a previous issue, but failed to give proper credit to the lawyer who handled the case. John Stamps, a very good lawyer from Bessemer, Ala., represented April Mack in a lawsuit which brought about an important change in Alabama law. In a unanimous decision, the Alabama Supreme Court expanded legal protections for the unborn child when it ruled that Alabama’s wrongful death statute applied to the unborn child at any stage of development. This means that a wrongdoer can be tried civilly for the death of an unborn child regardless of viability. April Mack was 12 weeks pregnant with Baby Mack in September 2007, when she was in a car accident that later resulted in the miscarriage of her unborn child.
