Motion seeks to throw out city's lawsuit against Covenant

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The fight between Lubbock city hall and businessman Ted Parker has taken a new twist.  Parker's company Healthsmart Preferred Care filed a motion to have the city's lawsuit against Covenant Healthcare System thrown out of court. 

The city sued Covenant in 2008 to get certain records pertaining to Parker's companies.  At that time Covenant said in court records that handing over the records might violate federal medical privacy laws.  Healthsmart's motion on Friday says the federal court does not have jurisdiction.
