The Lebanon Daily News and Associated Press are reporting that a court has ordered a private clinic in the Riviera city of Cannes to pay out 400,000 euros ($450,000) — each to two 20-year-old girls accidentally switched at birth and given to the wrong parents — part of a 1.88-million euro payment to members of the two families.
The clinic's lawyer, Sophie Chas, said she wasn't immediately certain whether an appeal would be lodged against Tuesday's decision by the court in Grasse.
Chas said the court ordered payments of 300,000 euros for each of three parents involved in the case and 60,000 euros for three brothers and sisters.
Do you think this is a fair award? Too little? Too much?
