Amicus Briefs Filed by California EMS Authority and EMSAAC in Orange County Case

EMSAAmicus Curiaeemsaac logo new

The California EMS Authority and EMSAAC have filed separate amicus briefs in an Orange County case involving interpretation of California EMS statute. Neither is party to a lawsuit filed in Federal District Court against twelve Orange County cities and CARE Ambulance, Inc. that alleged illegal anti-trust behavior regarding their emergency medical services. The court dismissed the action filed by AmeriCare MedServices, Inc. in favor of the defendant cities. AmeriCare has now filed a brief (see link below) with Ninth District Court of Appeals. The EMS Authority and EMSAAC submitted "friend of the court" briefs to inform a possible review of the case by the Appellate Court.
