The Yukon-native is suing Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital for breach of contract. In 2005, Brooks donated half a million dollars to his hometown hospital to honor his mother. Colleen Brooks died in 1999 of cancer.

Brooks said in court papers the hospital even presented mock-ups of buildings bearing his mother's name. But the singer said three years later, the hospital notified him it was spending the money, but not would not name a building addition after his mother.

Brooks asked the hospital to return the money, and the hospital refused. Attorneys for the hospital contend Brooks' donation was "anonymous and unconditional."

Jury selection begins Tuesday.
