Gordon v. Lewistown Hospital
In Gordon v. Lewistown Hospital, 423 F.3d 184, 201 (3d Cir. 2005), the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld a trial court's ruling that the defendant hospital had immunity from damages for suspending and then revoking a physician's medical-dental staff privileges, because this adverse peer review met the definition of professional review under HCQIA.
The decision was rendered by Judge D. Michael Fisher. Then-Judge Samuel Alito joined his decision, as did Judge Thomas L. Ambro.
