This disappointing news comes courtesy of the Boston Globe:

Former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis lost his lawsuit today against two surgeons who he said were negligent in treating him when he underwent gastric bypass surgery five years ago.

Michael Mone, the attorney for Weis, who is now head coach at Notre Dame, said he doubted that his client would try to appeal the decision.

“Obviously, Mr. Weis and I are disappointed. We recognize these cases are very difficult. They involve very complicated medical facts, and the jury listens to very different views on complicated medical facts. Medical malpractice cases are very difficult.

“We will consider an appeal, but we have no intention to do so. There are no issues that came up at the trial that would appear to be the basis for an appeal.”

Mone said Weis was flying back to South Bend, Ind. this afternoon and couldn’t be reached for comment.
