Improving Access to Medicaid in Florida


Court Rejects Motion to Dismiss

In January of 2007, the district court denied the defendants’ motions to dismiss, holding that the Law Center’s clients have the right to sue under Medicaid law. The defendants argued that the language of the statute did not grant private parties the right to enforce its provisions but failed to persuade the judge. On April 24, 2007, the court denied Defendants’ Motion for Reconsideration and to Certify Issues for Immediately Appeal on the same grounds.
