Attorney General Wasden’s Statement on the St. Luke’s Antitrust Lawsuit

(Boise) – Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden issued this statement following the decision today by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the antitrust lawsuit involving St. Luke’s Health System:

“I appreciate today’s decision and what it means for consumers and the healthcare marketplace of the Treasure Valley,” Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said. “This case is important because it ensures Idaho’s laws will continue to protect and promote competition and a healthy, thriving marketplace, not just in southwestern Idaho but across the state. The decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirms the 2014 decision by U.S. District Judge Lynn Winmill, upholds my commitment to protecting and defending Idaho’s marketplace and competition laws.

“We look forward to working with St. Luke’s in any way possible to fulfill what is now required by the court’s decision,” Wasden said.
