Richard Spohn Quoted in Daily Journal on Prime Healthcare Suit
Nossaman partner Richard Spohn was quoted in the Daily Journal story, "State Attorney General Sued For Blocking Hospital Company Purchase." Prime Healthcare Services Inc.—which pulled an offer to buy the Daughters of Charity Health Systems nonprofit chains of hospitals earlier this year—is suing Attorney General Kamala Harris over her scrutiny of the deal. Spohn was cited as a legal expert by the Daily Journal, and commented that the lawsuit was not a revelation of a new insight, and that Prime’s lawsuit is attacking a very traditional political player in the SEIU, even though the union is not named in the lawsuit. Spohn said the union has been arguing for the conditions called for by Harris since negotiations on the deal began.
