ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A federal judge has denied a motion by a former St. Vincent Hospital executive facing fraud charges to dismiss a civil suit against him.
Judge James Browning denied the motion to dismiss the lawsuit against Richard Crabtree on the grounds that the statute of limitations had expired.
A jury trial is scheduled for next May.
Crabtree has pleaded not guilty to the charges accusing him of conspiring with his then-girlfriend, Loretta Mares, to defraud the hospital of about $3 million.
