Represented by Jeffrey Ezra of Wendler & Ezra of Collinsville, Thompson is seeking damages in excess of $300,000, plus all costs of the suit.

According to the complaint, Becky Thompson claims her mother sustained severe and permanent injuries which led to her death on April 8, 2000. The complaint does not specify what ailed Ebmeyer.

Thompson claims that as of April 7, 2000, Rosewood failed to provide medication to her mother when an emergency presented itself.

She also claims that Rosewood failed to furnish supervision or monitoring consistent with her mother's needs, react and to an identified condition, protect her mother from bodily harm, ensure that her mother did not suffer from adverse medication consequences and remediate a pattern of poor care and treatment.

Thompson already had filed a case against Rosewood in Madison County, but voluntary dismissed it on Oct. 14, 2004. She had one year to re-file against Rosewood and did so on Oct. 14.
