LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville filed a counterclaim in a dispute with Norton Healthcare over Kosair Children's Hospital.
Dr. David Dunn, executive vice president for health affairs at the University of Louisville, says the university also filed a motion seeking court-ordered mediation to help with litigation costs.
Last week, U of L officials said Norton walked out on negotiations.
After Norton announced in August 2013 a possible partnership with the
University of Kentucky Healthcare and Kentucky Children's Hospital in
Lexington, U of L threatened to evict Norton from Kosair.
U of L claimed the partnership would violate a 1981 agreement that Norton must use the property for university benefit.
Norton filed suit in response, saying that U of L had no right to make such a move.
