ROCHESTER — The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court, Fourth Judicial Department, voted 3 to 2 last week to award a town of Olean man $24 million because he was misdiagnosed for a brain aneurysm in 1998 that led to a stroke, which left him paralyzed.

The Appellate Court upheld an earlier jury award worth more than $18 million plus other costs and interest in awarding Daniel C. Oakes of Olean, who suffered a paralyzing stroke three weeks after going to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital in Amherst on July 18, 1998, for two CT scans, one that apparently was never read.
