Judge Grants Motion to Dismiss The False Claims Act Case Against MEDHOST
FRANKLIN, Tenn. – June 17, 2020 – MEDHOST®, a market-leading electronic health record (EHR) and healthcare IT solutions provider announced today that on June 11, 2020, Judge Robert N. Scola, Jr. granted a motion to dismiss the False Claims Act case against MEDHOST styled as United States of America ex rel Derek Lewis and Joey Neiman, Plaintiffs v. Community Health Systems, Inc., and others, Defendants.
In the conclusion of his 38-page order that closed the case, Judge Scola, stated the following:
“While the Relators have indeed poured forth heaps of alleged facts, interwoven with conclusory allegations of wrongdoing, the resulting complaint is nonetheless fatally flawed. This is because, even when construing the universe of facts presented in light most favorable to the Relators, the Court is unable to reasonably infer that the Defendants have engaged in the alleged misconduct.”
Additionally, the order provided that “The Court dismisses the Relators’ claim on the merits, without leave to amend and therefore the dismissal is with prejudice.” This part of the order prevents Relators from amending and refiling the case.
