SRHS will have to pay its own legal fees, court rules

Singing River Health System lost its case in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals against an insurance company that has been paying the hospital system’s legal fees in the court battle against its retirees.

SRHS has had multiple attorneys on the two-year case and racked up attorney fees in the neighborhood of $3.4 million, which the insurer paid. Chubb, the insurance company, was arguing that there was a $1 million limit to what it actually owed.
