  • OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A federal magistrate will meet Friday with lawyers for a California hospital and a 13-year-old California girl declared brain dead after tonsil surgery.

    A federal judge issued an order Thursday instructing representatives of Children’s Hospital Oakland and the family of Jahi McMath to attend the mandatory settlement conference and try to avoid going to trial.

    The hospital and Jahi’s mother are locked in a harrowing clash over the girl’s care. Children’s maintains that Jahi is legally dead and that the ventilator keeping her heart pumping should be removed.
