    My personal experience as a plaintiff probably topped what‘s in the article which I did not read. I represented myself in a civil rights and medical malpractice lawsuit against New York Presbyterian Hospital after a total hysterectomy followed by other surgeries to correct medical errors made during the prior surgery . During a deposition, lawyers from ClearWater Bell asked me to pull down my pants and underwear to show the scars above my vagina and below my belly. Relevancy or not, it was done to humiliate and intimidate me as a disabled Haitian woman who could not find a lawyer to represent her. I lost the case and the retaliations never stopped up till today.
