CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - University Hospitals has filed a court motion to dismiss the lawsuits over its fertility clinic failure in Cuyahoga County Court, according to attorney Tom Merriman.
As it stands, there have been only two motions filed, but Merriman expects UH to file dismissal motions on the other cases as well.
The news comes weeks after a nitrogen storage tank failed at the hospital's fertility clinic, leading to the destruction of thousands of eggs and embryos.
In response, the hospital has been hit with scores of lawsuits from impacted patients.
Hundreds of families are still reeling from the loss.
