Attorneys for Trinity Health and Manor Care were in a Minot courtroom today, arguing over what evidence and testimony should be admitted in an upcoming civil trial.
Manor care is suing Trinity claiming Trinity’s actions regarding an outbreak of Hepatitis-C in Minot hurt Manor Care’s business value.
The outbreak five years ago involved more than 50 residents of Manor Care and the nursing home blamed the phlebotomy services provided by trinity for spreading the disease.
A Manor Care attorney told Judge Todd Cresap today that the company lost millions of dollars in value after the outbreak was discovered.
Cresap will be presiding over the jury trial that is scheduled to start October First in Minot.
A separate civil case where Trinity is suing several companies for defamation is set for trial in the year 2020.
