IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 5, 2007
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, EX REL., ANTHONY J. CAMILLO AND ANTHONY CAMILLO, INDIVIDUALLY, PLAINTIFF,
ANCILLA SYSTEMS, INC., D/B/A ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL OF EAST ST. LOUIS AND ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL OF EAST ST. LOUIS, INC., N/K/A KENNETH HALL REGIONAL HOSPITAL, INC., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
On February 23, 2007, the Court held a hearing regarding the pending settlement in this matter, to which the Government filed an objection (Doc. 259). Based on the argument during the hearing, the Court finds that the settlement is fair and reasonable. Thus, pursuant to Plaintiff's September 7, 2006, stipulation (Doc. 251), the Court GRANTS in part Defendant's motion for summary judgment on Counts II and III of the Fifth Amended Complaint (Doc. 226) and DENIES as moot Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment (Doc. 229). Also pursuant to Plaintiff's September 7, 2006 stipulation for dismissal (Doc. 252), the Court DISMISSES with prejudice Count I of the Fifth Amended Complaint. Further, the Court DISMISSES with prejudice Counts IV and V of the Fifth Amended Complaint pursuant to Plaintiff's September 8, 2006 stipulation for dismissal (Doc. 253). In light of these rulings, the Court finds the Governments objections moot. Lastly, the Court DENIES as moot Defendant's motion to strike (Doc. 233) and Defendant Ancilla Systems' motion for summary judgment (Doc. 227). The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to enter judgment reflecting the same.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
