Court to heal appeal of breach of contract ruling
Published: May 6,2013
JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear oral arguments June 5 in a Jackson hospital’s appeal of a $2.27 million judgment for a doctor in a breach of contract lawsuit.
Dr. Adolfo Morales, an ophthalmologist, had alleged Central Mississippi Medical Center breached a physician recruitment contract in 2004, which would have allowed him to establish a surgery practice in Jackson.
A Hinds County jury ruled for Morales in 2011.
CMMC argues there was no contract. It said its parent company, Health Management Associates Inc., had undergone a change in management and did not approve the deal.
Morales said HMA’s acts created a severe black mark or “gap” in his resume, causing him to remain unemployed for more than three years and prevented him from performing surgery for almost five years.
