MIAMI (WFLX) - A South Florida family is suing after doctors perform an unauthorized circumcision.

A couple in Miami says they were repeatedly asked whether they wanted their newborn son circumcised. Their answer was "no".

The hospital is admitting they made a mistake saying they misread the consent form.
