Bruce D. Armon, a partner in the Health Practice and managing partner of the firm’s Philadelphia office, is the co-author of two articles in the January issue of Credentialing & Peer Review Legal Insider.

One article explains a ruling in which the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida granted summary judgment in favor of a hospital which faced racial discrimination claims brought by a Palestinian physician.  The second article is about the Colorado Court of Appeals affirming the constitutionality of a new statute abrogating immunity for hospitals in civil actions related to credentialing decisions made during peer review proceedings.
