The lawsuit, filed in 2017, accused Bauer and five unnamed defendants of making threats to harm Lutheran Health Network after their refusal to sell its hospitals to Bauer.

Bauer was fired as Lutheran Health Network’s CEO back in June of 2017.

A judge ruled in February of this year that Bauer disclosed confidential information in working to bring Indiana University Health to Fort Wayne. However, CHS’ request to deny Bauer from working with IU Health was denied.
