Hearing set for Monday, April 13, 2009

STAMFORD — - Hearings involving the woman who was brutally attacked by a chimpanzee in February were postponed today.

Carla Nash is in critical but stable condition at the Cleveland Clinic. She sustained traumatic brain injury and the loss of both her hands, her nose, lips and eyelids in the attack, which also left her blind.

Sandra Herold, the owner of Travis the chimp, is being sued by Nash's family. Attorneys representing Nash's twin brother, who has been appointed her conservator, want to prevent photos taken after the incident and her medical records from being released to the public. They are also seeking to freeze Herold's assets so she cannot transfer them.

Since the attack, Nash has made significant neurological and psychological improvements, according to the clinic, but is expected to have to undergo numerous surgeries over the next two years as doctors work to reconstruct her face. It may take up to a year for her to make a full cognitive recovery, the clinic said.
