RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota hospital has prevailed in a civil lawsuit filed by a cardiothoracic surgeon trying to recover more than $750,000 in wages and damages.

The Rapid City Journal (https://bit.ly/1GdQ4XZ ) reports that a jury has sided with Rapid City Regional Hospital in the case brought by 76-year-old James Oury. The doctor filed the complaint against the hospital and its physician network in 2013.

Oury says his contract with the network was breached and his reputation was damaged when his contract was not renewed in 2009. Oury said he wasn’t given a required 90-day notice.

The hospital, however, says Oury received a letter in November 2008 that was clearly a termination notice.

A federal judge two years ago dismissed an age-discrimination suit filed by Oury against the network.
