    The family of Lynn Spalding, who was found dead in a stairwell weeks after she disappeared from her hospital room at San Francisco General Hospital, is suing the City of San Francisco.

    Back in March, the family filed a wrongful death claim, which often leads to a lawsuit.

    The claim blames the city-run hospital and the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department for Lynne Spalding’s death.

    Authorities found her body on Oct. 8 of 2013, after she had been dead for several days and after she had been missing for 17 days.
