AMA Joins TMA in Hospital Lawsuit

The American Medical Association Litigation Center is joining TMA to support a group of South Texas physicians in their ongoing legal battle with Knapp Medical Center in Weslaco. TMA and AMA are preparing to file an amicus curiae ("friend of the court") brief urging an appeals court to uphold a lower court ruling in the physicians' favor.

Thanks in part to TMA's legal arguments, State District Judge Israel Ramon Jr., ordered Knapp to release balance sheets; cash flow statements; management letters from the external auditor; compensation documentation for all employees; documentation of deferred executive compensation; Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Forms 990 for the years 2008-10; and other financial records.
