Suit against abortion doctor settles same day criminal case wraps

Attorney forges ahead with civil matter, secures $2M award

A Boston plaintiffs’ lawyer recently represented the parents of 22-year-old Laura Smith, who died on an abortion table in 2007 at the hands of her Harvard-affiliated obstetrician, Rapin Osathanondh. On the three-year anniversary of Smith’s death, and the same day the doctor pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges, Angueira brokered a highly unusual $2 million wrongful-death settlement.
