Michael Furey was quoted in an article, “Horizon Can’t Divvy Up Trial With Hospitals Over Tiered Plan,” published by Law360. As noted in the article, Superior Court Judge Robert P. Contillo has rejected Horizon Healthcare Services Inc.’s request for two separate bench trials over three hospitals’ claims that Horizon’s tiered health coverage plan, Omnia, leaves them competitively disadvantaged. In addition, Judge Contillo denied Horizon’s motions to prevent the hospitals from introducing damages evidence and to prevent the trial testimony of their liability expert. Furey told Law360, “We are hopeful the case will go to trial, as scheduled on May 7, and the truth about Omnia will finally be revealed that not only these hospitals but also the public is being harmed by Omnia.”
Furey and Dennis LaFiura are representing the three hospitals, CentraState Medical Center in Freehold; Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck; and Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.
