Livingston County Judge Jason Kanoy has dismissed two cases against three health care providers.  The wrongful death suits have been filed against Grand River Health System (now known as Hedrick Medical Center),Saint Lukes Health System, and Community Health Group in Kansas City and the plaintiffs are Helen Pittman on behalf of Shirley Eller and Jennierae Littrell on behalf of Clarence Bailey Walker.  According to the plaintiffs’ attorney, Steven Streen, Judge Kanoy has ruled that the statute of limitations has expired in these cases.  Streen continues to argue that the statute should be determined based upon a date when a cause of action was reasonably attainable. Streen says that he plans to take the cases to the court of appeals.
