A lawsuit against Presbyterian Healthcare Services by a group of local cancer doctors, led by the former president of the American Medical Association, alleging Presbyterian used its clout to retaliate against them after they opened an oncology clinic has been dismissed by U.S. District Judge Martha Vázquez after she found no violations of federal antitrust laws.
New Mexico Oncology and Hematology Consultants Ltd., founded in 1987 by Drs. Barbara McAneny and Clark Haskins, filed the lawsuit in 2012 after a long relationship between Presbyterian and the company soured.
The company claimed Presbyterian retaliated against the local doctors group after it built the New Mexico Cancer Center in Albuquerque.
