Michigan hospital operator wants to settle nurse lawsuit
AP/Chicago Tribune, April 10, 2009
St. John Health has agreed to pay $13.5 million to settle allegations that it conspired with other hospitals to suppress nurses' pay in the Detroit area. A federal judge in Detroit has set a May 13 hearing to consider the deal. A settlement won't close the class-action lawsuit: Other healthcare providers accused of violating antitrust laws by exchanging information on pay still are part of the case.
