Attorneys in Dr. Weiner case to huddle July 6 over motion requests

Phil Drake

Oral arguments regarding summary judgments will be heard July 6 for a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by an oncologist who once worked at St. Peter’s Health as attorneys for all sides hope to hash out a long list of requests.

A status conference was held Friday at Lewis and County 1st District Court in the case of Dr. Thomas Weiner vs. St. Peter’s Health. Judge Mike Menahan said a May 25 pre-trial conference would have to be rescheduled as he had a jury trial now scheduled for that day and noted the criminal matters take priority over civil cases.

Menahan told attorneys for Weiner, St. Peter’s and Dr. Randy Sasich, who was named in the suit, that there are many motions pending before the court, “some of which are ripe.”

He said in the court filings there are 372 documents filed and many are motions. He said there are 500 entries.

One attorney noted that there are 27 motions which he said would likely take at least 13 1/2 hours of argument based on 30 minutes per motion.
