Independence, MO (PRWEB) December 12, 2006

Medical Supply Chain founder Samuel Lipari’s lawsuit for $ 450 million dollars in damages over a contract with General Electric (GE) to finance the Independence Missouri firm’s entry into the hospital supply market in June 2003 was returned to Jackson County 16th Circuit Court at Independence by the US District Court for the Western District of Missouri. The GE defendants attempted to remove the case to US District Court on July 17, 2006 after General Electric lost a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on May 31, 2006 and failed to attend two Jackson County Circuit Court hearings or participate in court ordered mediation since the lawsuit was filed March 22, 2006. The lawsuit is Lipari v General Electric, et al, Case # 0616-CV07421

United States District Judge Hon. Fernando J. Gaitan, Jr. ordered the lawsuit remanded back to Jackson County 16th Circuit Court of the State of Missouri on November 29, 2006 because the federal court lacked jurisdiction.

Power. John K. Power, Husch & Eppenberger, LLC 1200 Main Street Suite 2300 Kansas City, MO 64105, (816) 283-4651.
