DMC lawsuit: Merger between McLaren and Karmanos improper

Detroit Free Press, December 12, 2013
The Detroit Medical Center says it has an exclusive partnership and ironclad contract with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and is asking a judge to block what it says is an improper merger and marketing partnership between the research center and Flint-based McLaren Health Care. Even though Karmanos would remain on the DMC campus in Midtown, the news of the acquisition in October stunned leaders at DMC and at the Wayne State University Physicians Group, which treats many Karmanos cancer patients. In its claim, filed late Friday in Oakland County Circuit Court, the DMC asked Judge Wendy Potts for an injunction.
