Judge Decides on the Side of Hospital in Murdered Reporter Lawsuit
KATV reports a Little Rock Judge sided with St Vincent Medical Center in a lawsuit filed by Patti Cannady, the mother of KATV reporter Anne Pressly who was murdered in 2008. The lawsuit was filed after a doctor and two hospital employees pleaded guilty to charges of federal medical privacy violations. The story says Arkansas law that doesn't allow claims of privacy invasion to proceed once the affected person dies. Cannady released a statement saying the family's lawyers are prepared to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court.
