The seven babies born to Patti and Sam Frustaci in 1985 took the couple on an odyssey from hope to heartbreak: Only three of the infants survived. The septuplets--four boys and three girls--were born by caesarean section 12 weeks premature in Orange County. One was stillborn. The other six ranged in weight from 1 pound, 1 ounce to 1 pound, 13 ounces. During the next 19 days, three of the infants died, all from hyaline membrane disease, a condition in which the lungs collapse after each breath.

Based on his own version of the facts, lawyer R. Browne Greene failed to deal ethically with his clients in turning down a $2-million settlement offer in a case he ultimately lost, an expert witness testified Tuesday. Costa Mesa lawyer Garvin F.
