Judge dismisses legal challenges to new Sutter hospital
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

A Sonoma County judge has rejected many of the legal objections to the Board of Supervisors’ approval last year of a new Sutter Medical Center north of Santa Rosa.

Judge Rene Chouteau faulted the county’s approval of the $284 million hospital complex on two limited issues, but rejected other complaints raised in the lawsuit filed in September by hospitals in Healdsburg and Sebastopol and an environmental group.
