Court awards woman $8.4 million Her psychiatrist, sought on fraud counts, defended `rage reduction' therapy

Date: 1996-10-09

Human rights advocates said they hope the ruling will prompt the Legislature to ban the treatment statewide. The court found Dr. Robert H. Gross responsible for assaulting and intentionally inflicting emotional distress on Jeannie Warren while treating her at the now-defunct Psychiatric Institute of Fort Worth.
