A lawsuit challenging the award of an EMS provider contract by a Tennessee county to MedicOne Medical Response has been dismissed. The lawsuit was filed earlier this year by Unicoi County resident John Day against the county seeking to block the award to MedicOne because the county failed to “employ an open, fair, and competitive bidding process.”
