Government tries to have foster parent's Hepatitis C lawsuit tossed out of court

Former foster parent Teresa Iezzi, who alleges she was infected with Hepatitis C by a drugged-up teen client, looked on Tuesday as a government lawyer tried again to have her lawsuit for damages thrown out of court.

She claims the government failed to warn her that the teen, who accidentally stabbed Iezzi in 2001 with a needle while she was shooting up heroin, had the sometimes-fatal liver disease and passed it on to her.
