More Lawsuits Filed Against Former Surgeon

More patients have filed suit against a former surgeon at Putnam General Hospital and its former operator. The eight new lawsuits accuse John King of misrepresenting his qualifications before the surgeries.

King already faces more than 100 malpractice lawsuits.

He left Putnam General in 2003. He has since changed his name to Christopher Wallace Martin and lives in Alabama.

King's medical privileges have been taken away by West Virginia and several other states.
