Former San Diego Mayor's Wife Sues City Over Ruptured Breast Implants

Former San Diego Mayor Roger Hedgecock and his wife are suing the city. They claim in 2015, Cynthia Hedgecock fell on a damaged sidewalk in Pacific Beach that they say ruptured her silicone breast implants, requiring her to undergo "grueling" replacement surgery.

While the Hedgecocks aren’t seeking a specific amount, the lawsuit they filed last October says the damages they suffered “are well in excess of $25,000.”

Roger Hedgecock is a co-plaintiff because he suffered “the loss of support, service, love, companionship, society, affection, relations and solace from his wife.”

Lawyers in the case are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss potential trial dates.

What do you think? Do they have a case? Or just another frivolous lawsuit?
