Judge won't compel the health system to fund doctor's defence

COLUMBUS, Ohio—A federal judge declined for now to compel a Michigan-based health system to advance legal costs for a doctor's defence against murder charges in the deaths of 25 Ohio hospital patients.

U.S. District Judge George Caram Steeh in Michigan concluded Wednesday it's in the public interest to deny the preliminary injunction sought by William Husel.
