RIPLEY —A health association claims that a property was unfairly sold to a third party, despite the association's interest and offer on the property.
Community Health Association dba Jackson General Hospital filed a complaint in Jackson Circuit Court against Jackson Medical Center Incorporated.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is seeking damages for an incident which took place November 27, 2018, when the defendant was notified by the plaintiff of the intention to repurchase a subject property that was previously known as Jackson General Hospital. The plaintiff corrected a clerical error in a letter on January 23, 2019, but on August 29, 2018, the defendant entered into a real estate sale and purchase agreement to sell the property to Charleston Area Medical Center, rather than the plaintiff. The defendant allegedly had an obligation to inform the plaintiff, who made the first offer, of their intentions buts failed to do so.
The defendant is accused of specific performance.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Leah R. Chappell of Adams, Fisher & Chappell in Ripley.
The case has been assigned to Judge Lora Dyer.
