TV’s Judge Glenda Hatchett is involved in a wrongful death lawsuit after her daughter-in-law died shortly after she gave birth.

Kyira Johnson, who was married to Judge Hatchett’s son, Charles, went to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for a C-Section, but according to the lawsuit, while she was recovering in the hospital, her blood pressure plummeted and she complained of pain in her abdomen. However, she wasn’t taken into surgery for 10 hours, where doctors found three liters of blood in her abdomen from “excessive bleeding” and could not save her.

“The last thing she said to me was that, ‘I am scared.’ I held her hand I kissed and I told her everything will be OK,” Charles said.

Hatchett took to Instagram to tell her story, writing:

My daughter died tragically and it should have never happened. Cedars-Sinai and medical personnel failed her and our family. This is the most important case I will ever be involved in. You hurt my children..you cut me to the depths of my soul and they will have to deal with me. Trust and believe I will never rest until justice is done and all responsible for taking Kyria from us is held accountable. This is not a threat it is a promise. #shameoncedars.

The hashtag #shameoncedars has since been trending.

In responding to the tragedy, Cedars-Sinai told Inside Edition that they are “deeply saddened by the death and the toll it is taking on her family. We strongly support the family’s goal of determining exactly why this happened.”

“While federal privacy laws prevent us from responding directly about any patient’s care without written authorization, we can share the following,” they added.

“Any time there are concerns raised about a patient’s medical care, we conduct an investigation to determine exactly what happened, including reviewing hospital procedures and the competency of health care providers, and make changes as needed to ensure that we continue to provide the highest quality medical care.”
