The Mississippi Supreme Court has granted a motion from St. Dominic Health Systems to dismiss its appeal of a judge's order that it did not have a binding contract to buy an outpatient surgery clinic in Canton.
The dismissal order was made public by the court on Thursday.
St. Dominic had argued that a Madison County judge acted hastily in ruling that its letter of intent did not obligate Madison Ambulatory Surgery Center to be bought by the hospital.
A Madison County judge ruled the letter of intent did not bind MASC to sell to St. Dominic.
MASC attorneys argued the letter of intent guaranteed only that the two companies would continue negotiating later, not a sale.
