Families Lose Bid in NJ, PA “Killer Nurse” Lawsuit

Eight families who won a $95 million civil judgment against a former nurse who admitted killing patients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have lost what could be their final bid to sue a hospital where he worked.

The (Allentown) Morning Call reports the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals from families seeking to reverse a lower court ruling that dismissed St. Luke’s Hospital from the civil suit involving former nurse Charles Cullen.

Cullen is serving consecutive life sentences in New Jersey after admitting he killed at least 29 people.

In 2010, a jury awarded $95 million in damages to the families of eight people who died at St. Luke’s, in Fountain Hill outside Bethlehem.
