Michael Furey was quoted in an article, "Hospitals' suit over OMNIA health plan can continue, Appellate Division says," in NJBIZ. Day Pitney is representing three New Jersey hospitals in a lawsuit against Horizon Healthcare, relating to the formation of its new, multi-tiered health plan called OMNIA. As the article reports, the hospitals can continue their case according to a court order from the Appellate Division which denied motions from Horizon that sought to stay the case until the Supreme Court reviews an appeal pending before it. The Appellate Division also refused Horizon's attempt to stop depositions and prevent the release of documents. The decision by the appellate court is "very positive news," Furey told NJBIZ. "(Friday's) ruling is an important step in moving this case forward and unraveling the secrecy surrounding Horizon's ill-conceived OMNIA plan," Furey said. "We remain confident that ultimately the public will learn the truth about OMNIA and that the court will rule in favor of the hospitals."
