Survived MTD in Hartford HealthCare suit

Perry Law currently serves as co-counsel in the representation of class action plaintiffs who, in February of 2022, filed a class action antitrust lawsuit in Connecticut Superior Court in Hartford alleging that Connecticut’s second-largest healthcare conglomerate—Hartford HealthCare (“HHC”)—is using anti-competitive methods to charge unreasonably high prices and reduce quality of care at its facilities. The class of Plaintiffs that Perry Law represents allege that, through HHC’s aggressive contracting practices, acquisition strategy, and pricing, it is overcharging consumers and harming the residents, small businesses, and taxpayers of Connecticut. The matter is one of the first class-action lawsuits in the country that seeks to reduce healthcare costs by targeting healthcare provider consolidation and anticompetitive practices.

Attempting to doge their responsibility for these practices, HHC’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the case outright. Today, the Honorable Judge John B. Farley denied this motion, allowing the case to move forward. Having survived the motion to dismiss, litigation will now proceed to discovery, where our attorneys will continue to fight for our clients’ claims. Our team achieving this victory included our partners Danya Perry and Peter A. Gwynne. See Law360’s coverage of this success here.
