Court Certifies Class In Scripps Health Uninsured Patients Litigation
June 27, 2007
Superior Court Judge Steven Denton entered an order granting class certification to claims by Phillip Franklin that Scripps Health charges its uninsured patients unreasonable and unconscionable prices. The case will continue on behalf of potentially one hundred thousand uninsured patients, most living in the San Diego and Southern California region, who challenge alleged price gouging by Scripps hospitals since 2002.
“We are pleased that the Court recognized that Scripps has engaged in systemic pricing practices toward the uninsured which are suitable for systemic review,” said Kelly M. Dermody, a partner at Lieff Cabraser.
