The Authority granted HCR Manor Care a certificate of need on October 19, 2007, however, on November 15 the Service Employees International Union Local 1199 filed a Request for Reconsideration with the Authority along with an Appeal to the Office of Judges.
On November 20, the Authority issued its Decision on Request for Reconsideration granting the reconsideration and ordering a stay of its October 19, 2007 decision pending resolution of the request for reconsideration.
UPDATE (12/10/07): Jeff Mehalic at the West Virginia Business Litigation blog picks up on my post and includes uploaded links of some of the CON pleadings in the matter, including the:
- Authority's October 19, 2007 CON Decision approving the merger between Manor Care and Carlyle Group

- the Authority's Decision on Request for Reconsideration granting reconsideration, a hearing on the reconsideration and a stay of its October 19 Decision and
