Consumer Protection - Hospital System

Miller Canfield defended a hospital system against allegations that its charges for providing medical records in response to subpoenas were excessive, in violation of the Consumer Protection Act and Patients’ Bill of Rights.  The Michigan Supreme Court held as a matter of first impression that the Consumer Protection Act does not apply to purchases that are primarily for business purposes, and that such subpoenas were primarily for the business purposes of the patients’ attorneys.  The class action complaint was dismissed on our motion.
