Humana Lawsuit:The Court of Appeals ordered the federal district court in Akron to send the case back to state court. So far, the federal district court (Judge John Adams) has not taken any action in response to the Court of Appeals’ order. While the Court of Appeals’ order is binding on Judge Adams and he must comply with it, there is nothing we can do at this time to speed up the process. Dan Rudary, the Association’s lead litigator on this, expects Judge Adams to comply with the Court of Appeals’ order and send the case back down to state court within the next month or so. He suspects that we may be waiting for the 90-day period to file a Supreme Court appeal to expire, which in this case is October 5. Once the case is back in state court the appropriate parties will meet with the Judge and develop a case management schedule.
