Dr Gil Lederman argued he would not get a fair trial in an unrelated case because of claims he made George sign autographs as he lay dying. Judge Robert Gigante agreed and announced his decision by changing Harrison-penned Beatles' classics Something and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
His ruling, moving the New York City case to Albany, included: "Something in the folks he treats/ Attracts bad press like no other doctor." It added: "In our jurisdiction now/ He gets Beatle autographs somehow," and ended: "If this case were to keep/ Defendant would gently weep."
Lederman is being sued by relatives of dead cancer victim Suzanne Mikul, 66, who claim he gave her too much radiation. Lawyer Steven North called the ruling "an insult to the deceased, her husband and family".
