00-3753, 00-3879 Greenwell v. Aztar Indiana Gaming Corp.

“[A] substantial relationship between the alleged tort and some traditional maritime activity must … be shown… That element is missing here. … The referral was innocent and the alleged negligence of the doctors unforeseeable … The ordinary law of medical malpractice is adequate to deal with the consequences of the operation by medical landlubbers on Greenwell’s back for a condition that preexisted her maritime employment.”

Affirmed as modified.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Young, J., Posner, J.
