Austin dentist in toddler death sues Nancy Grace, other media outlets

An Austin dentist whose 14-month-old patient died after being put under anesthesia in 2016 is suing multiple national media outlets and broadcast personalities, including Nancy Grace, over their reports of the case.

In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Travis County state district court, Dr. Michael Melanson says the media outlets committed libel and slander by broadcasting and publishing what Melanson says is an inaccurate report from Dr. Robert Williams, an independent forensic dental examiner, who questioned why Melanson believed it was necessary to perform a dental procedure on 14-month-old Daisy Lynn Torres.
