Judge dismisses public records suit filed against Carolinas Healthcare System

From CharlotteObserver.com:  A judge has dismissed a lawsuit contending that one of the nation’s largest public hospital chains, Carolinas HealthCare System, violated the state public records law.

In an order signed Monday, Superior Court Judge Robert Sumner agreed that the Charlotte-based hospital system has a right to keep confidential a legal settlement that it obtained against the former Wachovia Bank.

Gary Jackson, the Charlotte lawyer who filed the public records lawsuit, says he will appeal that ruling to the N.C. Court of Appeals.
