Attorney General Wasden's Statement on St. Luke's Antitrust Case
(Boise) - Attorney General Lawrence Wasden issued this statement following the decision by U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill in the St. Luke's Health System antitrust case:
"We are very pleased with the judge's decision and believe the ruling is good for the residents and consumers of the Treasure Valley and the region's healthcare marketplace," Wasden said. "We now look forward to working with St. Luke's Health System and the Saltzer Medical Group in carrying out all that is required in the judge's decision. What compelled me to get involved in this important case is a commitment to ensuring that Idaho's laws protecting and promoting competition are upheld and that the marketplace is defended in a way to ensure the business climate in our state remains competitive. The resolution spelled out in the decision reaffirms my commitment to those goals."
