Health Care Litigation Partner Barry Landsberg was once again named to Daily Journal’s Top 100 Lawyers of 2022 list.
Barry was recognized for defending Dignity Health against a lawsuit (Gray v. Dignity Health) claiming the health system violated California consumer protection laws for failing to disclose emergency room services fees, which he said is the first decision to consider new hospital pricing transparency regulations that lists what must be disclosed.
"There's simply no legal duty by a hospital, before treating an emergency room patient ... to disclose ... an emergency room access fee," he said.
In addition to his work in Gray, Barry’s work to establish under the law that a hospital and its medical staff are separate legal entities was also noted. In particular, the publication highlighted his successful defense of Dignity Health against a lawsuit brought by a physician in Bakersfield as well as his ongoing work representing the health system against the medical staff of St. Mary Medical Center.
