By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) - A Lansing woman was given the green light to sue the Ingham County Health Department.

The Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled that the woman is allowed to sue.

She claims the department failed to diagnose her breast cancer.

Zanetta Hutchinson filed her lawsuit against the Ingham County Health Department, a doctor and a nurse practitioner.

She was diagnosed with the cancer in 2015.

The woman says the county health center allowed a malignant tumor to grow, unchecked, for years.
