CHARLESTON -- It looks as if Oprah Winfrey, President George W. Bush and Laura Bush won't be making an appearance in a Kanawha County courtroom after all.
A case in which a woman had sued Winfrey and the former first couple -- as well as three Charleston physicians -- after she claimed they all had conspired to implant a camera with wire sensors into her with the intent of reincarnation has been dismissed.
Days after the complaint was filed, Kanawha Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey dismissed the claim.
Emily K. Braxton claimed in a Dec. 9 complaint that on Feb. 19, 2009, and Oct. 20, 2009, the defendants poisoned her and caused her to have surgery. The three physicians listed in the complaint were Drs. John Anthony DeLuca, Richard Umstot and Benjamin Dyers.
During Braxton's surgery, she alleged the defendants implanted a 3-D camera Lucida with a film pack or plate and a wire sensor into her, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Braxton claimed she is being monitored 24 hours a day by the defendants through the camera.
Braxton, who filed the case herself, was seeking damages in the amount of $50 billion and for a court appointed attorney.
