Judge: Grady Memorial Hospital dialysis lawsuit will be dismissed

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, December 16, 2009

A Fulton County (GA) Superior Court judge said he will dismiss the lawsuit by patients trying to force Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital to reopen its outpatient dialysis clinic, according to a lawyer in the case. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of about 50 patients who are needy illegal immigrants. The patients and advocates said the closing of the clinic violated their constitutional right to the healthcare service. The patients also said that the closure represented medical abandonment.
