Attempted Monopolization Suit Based on Alleged Referral Steering Moves Forward
Moves Forward with Court’s Acceptance as Plausible of a Geographic Market Limited to a Single Hospital
Monopolization suit against public hospital system and its home health care agency will move forward. A federal district court denies motion for judgment on the pleadings in a case of a private home health care agency versus a public hospital and their home health care agency. This monopolization suit is based on two theories, which the court was critical of but decided that part of it was plausible so it is moving forward. This white paper reviews the background of this case and the monopolization that was alleged attempted, as well as the court’s analysis.
