Mt. Carmel Seeking To Delay Records Release In Husel Case

Columbus-based Mount Carmel Health System is asking a court to delay a records release involving malpractice lawsuits filed over allegations a now-former doctor ordered fatal painkiller doses for dozens of patients. 

Mount Carmel says in court filings until criminal and licensing board investigations on the actions of Doctor William Husel are completed it can't access information it needs to defend itself.  Attorney Gerald Leeseberg represents several families suing Mount Carmel. He opposes the request, calling it a cover-up attempt aimed at stopping independent investigations.
