The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the district court’s opinion, which included a holding that Lakeview Medical Center (“Lakeview”) and Lakeview Anesthesia Associates (“LAA”) had a duty to disclose to Kadlec Medical Center that Dr. Berry, a former partner with LAA, had a drug problem when it made inquiry after Berry applied to Kadlec for medical staff membership.
