Testimony Continues In Garth Brooks Lawsuit

KSCB News - January 20, 2012 8:09 am

An Oklahoma hospital executive says
country singer Garth Brooks considered giving $15 million to his
facility if it would name itself after his late mother.
Brooks is suing the Integris (in-TEHG-rihs) Canadian Valley
Regional Hospital, saying it wouldn’t name a women’s center for
Colleen Brooks after receiving $500,000 from him.
The Tulsa World reports that hospital president James Moore
testified Wednesday that discussions initially involved a much
larger gift.
An internal document from the hospital quotes Brooks as saying a
$15 million gift for naming rights was "exactly" what he had in
mind. Moore says he never spoke to Brooks about naming a women’s
center for a half-million dollars.
The hospital considers Brooks’ donation unconditional.
Colleen Brooks died of cancer in 1999. A women’s center never
was built.
