The 47-year-old is accusing the clinic of medical malpractice, alleging that they didn't perform a tracheotomy during the 20 minutes where doctors tried to revive Joan back to life.
The lawsuit names five doctors as defendants, including the comedian's personal physician — Gwen Korovin — for being in the surgery room unpermitted, as well as another who allegedly took cellphone pics during the operation.
In a statement released shortly after the suit was filed, Melissa explains her decision to press charges.
This really makes us miss seeing her on TV.
Joan Rivers has been gone for about four months now, but that doesn't mean she's been forgotten.
That's because the comedienne had her first guest appearance on this season of The Celebrity Apprentice on Monday night!
Joan won Donald Trump's reality show back in 2009, so she filmed some episodes before her death as a guest judge; the second of which is scheduled to air in February.
While it was amazing to see her having fun in the boardroom, we can't help but feel that the NBC competition series edited too much of her personality away in favor of being 'nice' and took away the humor that could have been a real tribute.

Over the weekend, Giuliana Rancic launched a brand new personal blog where she hopes to connect with fans and share updates about her various projects.
And what better way to kick off her fabulous website than with a touching tribute to former Fashion Police co-star and friend Joan Rivers!

Things aren't looking too good for the now infamous throat clinic where Joan Rivers went to get a routine procedure done.
In fact, things have been going extremely down hill for the medical office after the former Fashion Police star tragically passed away…
After Joan's death, the Department of Health and Human Services inspected the Yorkville Endoscopy Center and gave them a list of things they needed to improve on.
But according to Kathy Griffin, she already knew who would fill Joan's shoes: herself.
In fact, in a recent interview with PrideSource, the funny gal revealed she and the former host would continuously joke about death and the TV series.
Kathy revealed to the interviewer:
Wow, this is pretty shocking.
Essentially, Dr. Leonard Cohen thinks anesthesiologists for minor procedures like Joan's aren't cost-effective.
Hmm, we'd argue human life trumps money but that's just us!
In an article from 2012, Cohen wrote:
We mean, how do you fill the designer shoes of a red carpet legend like Joan? Why would anyone even try?
Kathy actually didn't think she could or would do it.
But it was the blessing of Melissa Rivers that changed her mind. She said:
