Garth Brooks sues hospital over donation

Garth Brooks is suing Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in Yukon, Okla., to get back his $500,000 donation made in 2005 after the hospital refused to name a building after his late mother, the Associated Press reported. The famous country singer said he believed at least some part of the facility would be named after his mother, Colleen Brooks. However, Integris has said the donation was an "unconditional" gift.

"Unfortunately, talks broke down or did not continue or Mr. Brooks was not satisfied with the options we were offering, and that's when he decided to sue," hospital spokesman Hardy Watkins said Tuesday before the trial began. Watkins said the donation remains unspent in a hospital account. Article
