(Las Vegas,  NV)  —  A woman who claimed University Medical Center’s emergency room workers didn’t treat her when she went into labor has won a settlement.  The “Review-Journal” says officials at the county-run hospital have agreed to pay Roshunda Abney 225-thousand dollars for the 2009 incident.  Abney filed a federal lawsuit, claiming she waited for six hours without being treated at UMC.  She gave birth to a girl a day later, but the baby died.  Abney also sued nearby Valley Hospital for a similar allegation.  A trial in that case is set to begin next week.
