Epstein Becker Green’s representation of Deborah Heart and Lung Center, a specialty charity hospital, in a tortious interference and unfair competition lawsuit against a large regional health system was discussed in the New Jersey Law Journal. This highly complex litigation has raised cutting-edge issues, made new law, and is the first complex, commercial jury trial to be conducted in-person post-pandemic in New Jersey.
Anthony Argiropoulos, Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care & Life Sciences practices and Co-Chair of the firm’s National Litigation Steering Committee, in the firm’s Princeton office, leads the case. Anthony is joined by attorneys Thomas Kane, Robert Travisano, and Maximilian Cadmus.
Following is an excerpt:
- Trial is expected to run through December in dispute over unfair competition and civil conspiracy claims between hospital operators.
- Deborah says Virtua wanted to see it shut down because it has a cardiac surgery license, something Virtua lack[ed].
- Virtua says Deborah’s claims are implausible and unsupported by the facts.
