CHSPSC LLC

Full title: STEWARD HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, LLC v. CHSPSC, LLC

Court: Superior Court of Massachusetts

Date published: Aug 21, 2019

Facts

This case arises from contractual agreements between the plaintiff Steward Health Care System, LLC (Steward), and the defendant CHSPSC, LLC, and its parent company CHS/Community Health Systems (collectively, CHSPSC). These contracts were negotiated when Steward’s principal place of business was in Boston, Massachusetts. Disputes arose between the parties concerning the performance of the agreements, and in September 2018, CHSPSC sent a demand letter to Steward threatening to cut off certain services. Steward filed the instant lawsuit on October 30, 2018, seeking an injunction to prevent this. Three days later, on November 2, 2018, CHSPSC filed its lawsuit against Steward in Tennessee (the Tennessee Action). The Tennessee Action arises from the same contractual disputes. The case is now before this Court on CHSPSC’s Motion to Dismiss under Rule 12(b)(2), Mass.R.Civ.P., alleging that this Court does not have personal jurisdiction against CHSPSC, a Tennessee-based company. In the alternative, CHSPC moves to dismiss pursuant to the doctrine of forum nonconvenient.

Issue

Decision

Accordingly, for the foregoing reasons and other reasons outlined in Steward’s memoranda in opposition, the Motion to Dismiss is DENIED.
