Greg Halbrook has been awarded $4.5 million in damages and legal fees by a private binding arbitration panel for the wrongful death of his mother Eleanor Wildhaber, a three-week resident of the Life Care Center of Las Vegas.

Though originally filed in district court, the lawsuit was moved to federal court, and the arbitration panel found that Wildhaber was a victim of neglect and elder abuse while at the Las Vegas nursing home, which is one in a national chain called Life Care Centers of America. Wildhaber was a resident of the facility for less than three weeks following a stroke in 2008.

An attorney for the plaintiff said the facility “put profits over people,” and filed court papers yesterday requesting a federal judge to approve the award.
