: St. Joseph relieves Midei from duty after performing an internal review of his work.
: St. Joseph begins sending letters to roughly 600 of Midei's patients telling them they might have had unneeded stents implanted in their coronary arteries and suggesting that they see a doctor. The warnings lead to dozens of lawsuits against the hospital and Midei.
: State regulatory documents indicate that Midei was able to avoid St. Joseph's peer review process because, as a department head, he chose which cases would be reviewed.
: Midei files a $60 million lawsuit against St. Joseph alleging that it made him into a "sacrificial lamb" to deflect the attention of civil investigators looking into a separate kickback scheme between the hospital and MidAtlantic.
