MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A judge has scheduled a hearing on a motion to throw out a lawsuit tied to a hepatitis C outbreak in Minot.

Fifty-two cases of hepatitis C were confirmed in Minot between August 2013 and January 2015. Data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show it was the largest such outbreak in the nation in 13 years.

Many of the outbreak victims and ManorCare nursing home are seeking money from Trinity Hospital, which they say is responsible for the outbreak.

Trinity denies responsibility and has asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.

Judge Todd Cresap has scheduled a July 15 hearing on the matter.
