Albany-- A lawsuit against Phoebe Putney, accusing the hospital of overcharging patients, will be tried here in Dougherty County.

Phoebe Putney is one of the 350 hospitals being sued for overcharging un-insured patients.

A panel has ruled that Phoebe and the other hospitals cannot be lumped into a class action lawsuit. Attorney Richard Scruggs says the decision is a procedural matter and will not affect the viability of his litigation.

Phoebe's Attorney Rick Langley says it could take years for all the cases to go to court.
