Well that month flew by! There was just one new lawsuit filed, a big battle between IU Health and Methodist Sports Medicine over use of the “Methodist” name. It was a quiet month in pending lawsuits as well, with just a few noteworthy updates. Compromise must have been in the air last month, as the status update for many pending cases is voluntary dismissal. There’s still no response from Dave Chappelle to his accuser, not that one is expected any time soon.
