Albany- Attorneys for Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital were in court Tuesday morning, asking Judge John R. Harvey to dismiss most of the counts brought by Charles Rehberg.

There are nine counts in Rehberg's suit against the hospital, all stemming form the infamous "Phoebe Factoid" faxes that Rehberg wrote and faxed to numerous people and businesses in 2003.

Phoebe attorneys are letting two counts stand-- Defamation of Character and False Imprisonment.

They are asking Judge Harvey to strike down seven counts that Rehberg has brought against the hospital: Fraud, Violation of Free Speech, Abuse of Litigation, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, Invasion of Privacy, Interference with Business Employees, and Improper conduct by a State Actor.

The judge ruled that Abuse of Litigation, and Interference with Business Employees would be droped, but the other seven charges would remain in effect.

Senior Judge John R. Harvey was brought in from the Atlantic Circuit after local judges recused themselves from the case.
