Family of former Texas US Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson announces resolution to claims after her death

The family of former U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson announced an agreement Thursday with a Dallas rehabilitation center over her death.

Family attorney Les Weisbrod said during a news conference in Dallas that Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation agreed to an unspecified donation to the Eddie Bernice Johnson Lives Foundation and will name a nursing scholarship in the name of the trailblazing Texas congresswoman.

Weisbrod said in January that Johnson died from an infection after being found in her own feces and urine at the facility following back surgery. He accused the facility of neglect at the time.

Weisbrod, who had said a lawsuit would be filed against the facility, declined to say how much Baylor Scott & White would donate. He said no legal action was filed because the facility reached out to resolve the matter.

Weisbrod said Baylor initiated discussions for the resolution and was “very generous” in its donation.

“When we can do good deeds and avoid a lawsuit that’s a win-win for everybody involved,” Weisbrod said.

Johnson’s son, Kirk Johnson, said his family is ready to move forward and, through the foundation, support organizations such as education, women’s rights, family stability and world peace.
