And the special master is…
I had to scroll through several pages of legal documents, but I finally have the name of Westerly hospital’s temporary special master. Superior Court Judge Brian Stern has appointed Attorney Mark Russo.
You might remember Mark Russo from the Landmark days. He represented Transition Healthcare, the hospital group that sued Landmark for a chance to bid on the hospital and then participated in a later round of bidding, only to eventually take itself out of the running. It was a very confusing time.
