In re Blue Cross Blue Shield Antitrust Litigation

Hospital, doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and other health care providers, along with individuals who purchased insurance, have brought suit against Blue Cross Blue Shield entities.  This lawsuit, which one of the Blue entities recently referred to as “possibly the largest class actions ever pursued, affecting up to 100 million Americans,” [Doc. 629] is In re Blue Cross Blue Shield Antitrust Litigation, Case No. 2:13-cv-20000, an MDL case pending before Judge David Proctor in the Northern District of Alabama.  Provider Plaintiffs allege that the Blues’ entities reached unlawful agreements to section the U.S. into discrete “Service Areas” in order to eliminate market competition and that prices have been affected as a result of this and other unfair practices.


Consolidated Second Amended Provider Complaint


Muren v. City of Columbia, Mo. 

WRRSV successfully represented a patient who was treated for a tuberculosis infection by the public health department.  The patient suffered liver failure and ultimately had to undergo a transplant due to improper administration of medication when the symptoms of an adverse reaction to the medication went unheeded.


Pistora v. Clough 

WRRSV represented a patient who received a devastating injury to his brain stem caused by a failed stereotactic radiosurgery procedure. The firm obtained a large confidential settlement, although unfortunately, no amount of money could undo the damage to the client’s brain stem.



In a case where a doctor failed to recognize symptoms of infection, ultimately resulting in a child’s death, WRRSV obtained a confidential settlement. The clients used the money to set up fund in honor of their child.  Notably, the hospital agreed to change its procedures to prevent similar deaths in the future.


Thomas v. Graham, Tebben & Olathe Medical Services 

WRRSV prosecuted the wrongful death of a four-year-old boy resulting from improper infusion of IV fluids. The child, who was suffering from dehydration, was killed when improper solutions and fluid amounts were infused. WRRSV obtained a confidential settlement for the boy’s family in what became the largest damage claim of its kind under Kansas law.



In a premature delivery case, WRRSV obtained a confidential settlement after our clients lost a child. The doctor responsible agreed to limit the types of cases he would take to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.
