Jersey City Medical Center prevailed in eliminating more than $223 million in potential damages sought by CarePoint Health Management Associates and McCabe Ambulance Services in a suit which arose from a 2016 settlement agreement over ambulance service provided in Jersey City.

A decision issued by Hudson County Superior Court Judge Anthony V. D’Elia, in CarePoint Health Management Associates v. Jersey City Medical Center, granted an order partially granting Jersey City Medical Center’s motion to dismiss the complaint filed by CarePoint and McCabe. At issue was a 2016 settlement agreement executed between plaintiffs CarePoint and McCabe and defendants JCMC and Jersey City, according to a memorandum filed on behalf of JCMC by Connell Foley attorneys John Lacey, Lauren Iannaccone and William Gattoni Jr.
