R.K. v. St. Mary’s Medical Center, Inc.

Case Number:
Case Issue:

Plaintiff R.K. appeals the circuit court's order dismissing his lawsuit against Defendant St. Mary's Medical Center, Inc., for the alleged improper dissemination of plaintiff's private medical information. Plaintiff asserts that the court erroneously dismissed his case by finding that his state common law claims are completely preempted by HIPPA. Defendant cross-assigns as error the circuit court's decision not to dismiss the case for failure to comply with the MPLA's pre-suit requirements; the court found that the MPLA does not apply.
