A judge in Montana has ordered the Fort Harrison VA Medical Center to pay $60,000 to a Winston man who was wrongly diagnosed with brain cancer and told he had just a few months to live.

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy wrote that the distress Mark Templin and his family suffered was caused by Dr. Patrick Morrow's "negligent failure to meet the standard of care" in delivering the diagnosis in 2009.
