HOUSTON - U.S. Judge Lee H. Rosenthal of the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, on May 31 denied a Medicare beneficiary a temporary restraining order (TRO) in her federal lawsuit against Select Specialty Hospital Houston, saying federal courts cannot issue a restraining order enjoining an ongoing state court proceeding. Select had filed its own TRO, seeking a court order requiring Catalina Blanco to vacate the premises and be moved to a lower-level nursing care facility (Catalina Blanco v. Select Specialty Hospital, Houston L.P., No. H-13-1591, S.D. Texas, Houston Div.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 77169).
