OC Hospital That Sued Doctor Drops Suit, Now Owes $2.7 million
Shaw's legal team: Dan Callahan and Marc Miles of the Newport Beach offices of Callahan & Blaine, which won the largest lawsuit in OC history a few years back and even took on the infamous security contractor Blackwater. Today, in a move that isn't surprising if you've read our previous stories on IHHI, the company agreed to drop its lawsuit against Shaw and pay $2.7 million to both Shaw and his Orange County Physicians Network, which owns a large share of IHHI stock.
The settlement follows the sudden resignation late last year of Bruce Mogel, IHHI's founder and CEO. More on Mogel and his alleged involvement in some truly bizarre stuff here and here. "This global settlement puts IHHI's hospitals on the path toward becoming the best in Orange County, undistracted by Bruce Mogel's pattern of abuse of power," Callahan says. "With Mogel at the helm, IHHI entered questionable contracts and misguidedly used its resources to litigate against its own doctors, as opposed to concentrating on the health and safety of Orange County residents."
