The legal battle between Trinity Health and Manor Care is continuing toward a trial – likely sometime in 2018.

A pre-trial hearing was held today and Manor Care’s attorney said the trial could begin early next year.

But an attorney for Trinity said the fall of next year would be the earliest to start.

Judge Todd Cresap said he would decide on a starting date in the next few weeks.

Manor Care has sued Trinity, saying the hospital is responsible for the Hepatitis-C outbreak in 2013 that infected more than 50 people, and blamed it instead on Manor Care.

The outbreak is the largest, unsolved Hepatitis-C outbreak in the nation’s history.

Manor Care’s lawsuit claims Trinity’s actions cost Manor Care millions of dollars and forced a sale of the facility at a price well below market value.

Trinity has disputed the claims made in the lawsuit.

The attorneys estimated the trial would last between four and six weeks.
