Acclaimed actor James Woods is suing a Rhode Island hospital over allegations his late brother died after receiving negligent medical care.
The Casino star lost his younger sibling Michael in 2006, when he passed away in the Kent Hospital after reportedly suffering a heart attack, aged 49.
Woods, the executor of his brother's estate, filed suit against the medical facility earlier this year (09), and the case will begin at Rhode Island's Kent County Superior Court on Monday (09Nov09).
A representative for the star refused to give any further details on the case, but the Associated Press claims Woods is seeking "justice" for his brother, who was also an actor.
