Chris Cornell’s Former Doctor Denies Wrongdoing In Malpractice Lawsuit

According to The Blast, Chris Cornell‘s former doctor Robert Koblin has responded to the malpractice suit filed by the Soundgarden frontman’s widow Vicky Cornell. The doctor denies having anything to do with Chris’ death.

Koblin is claiming that Chris was aware of the dangers associated with the anti-anxiety medication he was prescribed and that he asked to “not to be informed” of potential side effects. He is now seeking to have the suit dismissed, saying he is covered by a malpractice law that protects doctors during the death’s of certain patients.

Vicky originally filed the suit due to the doctor allegedly prescribing Chris 940 doses of the anti-anxiety drug Lorazepam (aka Ativan) and doses of Oxycodone during the last 20 months of his life. The suit went on to say that Koblin was writing prescriptions without re-examining Chris, despite the fact that he had history of addiction. It also mentioned that Lorazepam can lead to impaired judgment and increased suicide risks in those that are prone to addiction and that Koblin did not warn Chris about the increased risk of suicidal thoughts. Vicky and her children are seeking unspecified damages in the case.

Chris died on May 18, 2017 as a result of suicide.
