A Rogers County judge has denied a motion by Integris to dismiss Garth Brooks' lawsuit against their Yukon hospital.

Integris asked for the dismissal after Brooks finished testifying Monday

Brooks says he was glad to tell the jury his side of the story but found it tough to talk about his parents.

Monday is Day 5 of the trial in Brooks' lawsuit against a Yukon hospital. Brooks is suing the Integris hospital to get his $500,000 donation back after he said Integris didn't follow through on its promise.

After leaving the stand Monday, Brooks said he is trying to not let this experience make him cynical, adding he doesn't want the people in Yukon to confuse his feelings for Integris and for them.

Integris said Monday it is and will always will be committed to quality healthcare and believe Yukon residents understand that. A hospital spokesperson says lives are being saved, nurses and doctors are still treating patients and that will continue.
