ORDER Granting Preliminary Injunction

Date filed: September 16, 2013

Summary: In a case that PCVA filed separately on behalf of a single individual whose settlement has been delayed by MultiCare and Hunter Donaldson, Pierce County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Arend ruled that a plaintiff was “likely to prevail” in showing that a medical service lien relied upon to delay the settlement is illegal.  This is an important step in the overall Hunter Donaldson litigation and a clear victory as PCVA fights to stop MultiCare and Hunter Donaldson’s illegal billing practices.

ORDER Granting Plaintiffs’ Motion to Remand

Date filed: September 16, 2013

Summary: PCVA has won a significant victory in federal court in its bid to keep health care conglomerate MultiCare and its California collections company Hunter Donaldson accountable for fraudulent medical liens filed unlawfully against accident victims.  The U.S. District Court at Tacoma ordered that PCVA’s proposed class action lawsuit belongs in state court, not federal court.  PCVA originally filed the lawsuit in state court, but the defendants “removed” it to federal court.  Today’s order sends the lawsuit back to state court.  Although the defendants may appeal this order, the law has procedures in place to ensure that the issue is quickly resolved, and PCVA is cautiously optimistic that it will not be long before the class action is in full swing in state court.
