Phoebe/Palmyra decision reversed

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   There is a new Federal Ruling in Palmyra Medical Center's anti-trust lawsuit against Phoebe Putney Hospital.



Today the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed an Albany federal judge's dismissal of that lawsuit, and sent the case back to Albany Federal Judge Louis Sands.


In July 2008, Palmyra filed a lawsuit charging that Phoebe acted as a monopoly by attempting to stop Palmyra from some managed care markets and insurance plans.

Albany Federal Judge Louis Sands dismissed the lawsuit in March 2009, saying there was no conspiracy.

Today, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed his decision, and sent it back to Judge Sands for reconsideration.
