      Penis amputation lawsuit tossed out by Jefferson County Circuit Court judge

      BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- A lawsuit filed by a Birmingham last month claiming his penis was amputated during a circumcision operation at Princeton Baptist Medical Center was tossed out by a judge in Jefferson County Circuit Court Thursday.

      Judge Jim Hughey III dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice, giving the plaintiff, Johnny Lee Banks Jr., until Sept. 8 to file an amended complaint.{} Sworn statements by nurses say Banks had a circumcision at the hospital months before he claims, and there was no record of any amputation.The defendants listed in the suit include Simon-Williamson Clinic, Urology Centers of Alabama and Baptist Health Systems, Inc.
