Tenet Healthcare Corp., Santa Barbara, Calif., said it won a $105 million reduction in the judgment awarded to a founder of Tenet's predecessor company, National Medical Enterprises. Tenet had asked California's 2nd District Court of Appeals to reconsider its $253 million award in a wrongful-termination lawsuit originally brought against NME by John Bedrosian. The court declined to review the full ruling, but it changed the way interest is calculated on the award to Bedrosian, reducing total damages to $148 million. Tenet said it still plans to appeal the case to the California Supreme Court. Tenet owns or operates 106 hospitals, including five hospitals it has agreed to sell. -- by Vince Galloro
