The civil case against Michael Jackson and Marian Medical Center may not happen, according to the defendant's lawyer.
The family of Manuela Ruiz (a 74 year old at the time of her death) alleges that she was pushed out of her hospital room, in order to make room for Jackson in 2005. Ruiz later died.
Maria Ortiz, along with Rosa and Marcos Meraz, are suing over what they say was preferential treatment.
However, the plaintiffs did not appear in court on Monday. The hospital's lawyer says that they have not secured a lawyer.
A statement released by the hospital to Action News says:
"Patient care and safety is always our first priority at Marian. We have always been confident the care provided to Mrs Ruiz was exceptional. We continue to express our sympathy to the Ruiz family."
