Litigation support may come in a variety of requests, including consultation, filing as a representative plaintiff, intervening as a party, providing amicus support, or other related assistance. CHA’s Litigation Policy, updated by the Board of Trustees at its recent meeting, addresses the nature and scope that an issue presents for the hospital industry, and the procedural prerequisites that must accompany a request for CHA litigation or amicus support. The updated CHA Litigation Policy is attached.
