Maryland v. Medical Staff of Harford Memorial Hospital, 1981-2 Trade Cas. (CCH) 64,430 (Md. Ct. 1981)
State sought an injunction, alleging that Defendant, Medical Staff of Harford Memorial Hospital (Harford), agreed to refuse to deal with any radiologists who were in competition with O. G. Radiology Associates. The State further alleged that the purpose of the agreement was to prevent Harford from obtaining radiological services from radiologists not currently members of the Medical Staff and to compel Harford to accept the contractual terms demanded by O. G. Radiology Associates. As a result of the alleged agreement, radiologists were foreclosed from access to patients, and therefore excluded from the market.
