Senior care property REIT Ventas (VTR +1.3%) is higher this morning after the U.S. District Court cleared the way yesterday for it to collect on a $102M penalty owed by its rival HCP (HCP +0.7%). The payment stems from a 2009 judgment in connection with Ventas's acquisition of Sunrise Senior Living REIT from HCP in 2007.
