Cases settled over St. Vincent's pending lawsuits

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Five sets of parents who sued a Birmingham hospital over the handling of miscarried fetuses have settled pending lawsuits.

The trial in the first of five cases against St. Vincent's Birmingham had been set to start this week. A lawyer for the parents said once the details are worked out, he will submit a motion to dismiss the five cases.

That means they cannot be brought back later.
