The Czech Constitutional Court called on Thursday for an almost 40 year case to be reopened. The case concerns a woman who was mistakenly prescribed drugs in 1975 which sparked a reaction which almost killed her and left her with permanent disabilities. The most serious reaction was Lyells syndrome, a condition which causes skin to detach from the rest of the body. The woman was originally awarded half a million crowns with later court decisions confirming that award on the grounds that the case had been closed with that compensation award. The latest decision paves the way for her to receive a much more significant settlement.
