Two sides head to mediation after woman sues Eastern Montana hospital for not giving her a rape kit

A hospital in Eastern Montana remains locked in a lawsuit by a woman who said it denied her a rape kit after she was sexually assaulted, and discriminated against her based on her status as a Native American woman.

A Yellowstone County woman filed the lawsuit in Billings U.S. District Court against Sidney Health Center in January 2017. The two sides will soon head to mediation, with a request for a trial possible in early summer if necessary. The woman is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
