Judge rules against media groups in hospital case

A federal judge presiding over an antitrust lawsuit between two major Idaho health care providers has declared that trial testimony and documents can remain hidden from public view, providing attorneys make a compelling case for secrecy. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill's Tuesday ruling came in response to a challenge from a coalition of Idaho news organizations to a broad protective order that sealed documents and closed testimony in the trial to protect trade secrets. The lawsuit focuses on allegations brought by the Idaho Attorney General, the Federal Trade Commission and Saint Alphonsus Health System against St. Luke's Health System; it emerged in the wake of St. Luke's bid to buy Nampa-based Saltzer Medical Group.
