A Tragic Mother’s Day Story:
TV Judge Glenda Hatchett and Son Charles S. Johnson IVHealthy Wife Kyira Dies After Giving Birth to their sonSomething Went Terribly Wrong at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Los Angeles, CA – Kyira Dixon Johnson, the healthy, vibrant, fun-loving wife of Charles S. Johnson, IV, and mother of two beautiful children ages one and two, tragically died on April 13, 2016 at 2:22 am due to massive blood loss after a scheduled cesarean section delivery of their second son.

Yesterday, May 10, 2017, TV Judge Glenda Hatchett and her son Charles S. Johnson IV held a press conference to announce that they had filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Arjang Naim, M.D., Benham Kashanchi, M.D., Kathryn Sharma, M.D., Sara Churchill, M.D., Stuart Martin, M.D., and others, for the wrongful death of 39-year old mother and wife, Kyira Adele Dixon Johnson. The lawsuit was filed on March 22, 2017 in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles.

The plaintiffs filed a Complaint seeking damages for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress, stating that Kyira’s death was a result of the defendants’ failure to properly and timely respond to her symptoms, and adequately treat her.

Mother-in- Law, Judge Glenda Hatchett said, “The tragic death of this magnificent young woman who had become my daughter was absolutely so unnecessary. The Complaint speaks for itself and I trust this lawsuit will spare other families the enormous pain that we are suffering.”

Judge Glenda Hatchett, host of the two-time Emmy-Nominated nationally syndicated show, Judge Hatchett, now in its 16 th season. Hatchett is a former Chief Judge of one of the nation’s largest juvenile court systems.
