Jeff Landry wants to join antitrust lawsuit to protect LSU medical school

    Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has asked to enter the BRF-Willis-Knighton antitrust lawsuit as a friend of the court, insisting his presence will protect LSU’s medical school in Shreveport and the state’s most at-risk residents.

    As The USA Today Network of Louisiana reports, Willis-Knighton filed a brief Friday with U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote supporting Landry’s entrance into the case, while BRF filed a brief with the judge in opposition.

    LSU isn’t a party in BRF’s and Vantage Health Plan’s lawsuit against Willis-Knighton, but the ¬†university is prominently involved.
