The state Supreme Court has refused to throw out an invasion of privacy countersuit by a surgery patient who was sued by her nurse for failing to reveal that her blood was infected with the AIDS virus. With two justices dissenting, the court declined to hear contentions by the nurse that the patient's countersuit violated the constitutional right to openly discuss litigation in public.

The states' rights movement has been gaining strength at the Supreme Court, and Alabama's lawyers urged the justices Wednesday to take another step by shielding states from federal discrimination claims brought by people with disabilities. A nursing supervisor who was demoted after she underwent treatment for breast cancer filed such a bias suit three years ago against her employer, the University of Alabama-Birmingham Hospital.

A nurse at Kaiser Permanente's clinic in Thousand Oaks--who is also a patient there--filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the medical facility and eight of her colleagues, claiming invasion of privacy and defamation. Last July, the licensed vocational nurses who worked with her staged a one-day strike, citing their frustrations over the care of an unnamed patient who they said was addicted to the prescription drug Demerol. In her lawsuit, Linda Vergilis said her colleagues were referring to her.

A federal appeals court has ruled for the second time in favor of a 29-year-old aspiring nurse who sued Los Angeles County, contending that she was denied admittance to nursing school because she suffered from a chronic intestinal disorder for which there is no cure. The ruling on Friday by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of Mary L. Kling reverses for a second time a lower court judgment against the woman, who suffers from Crohn's Disease.
