BATON ROUGE- The Louisiana attorney general's office says a special grand jury has been selected to look into possible criminal activity involving the award of a $200 million Medicaid contract by Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration.

It's part of an ongoing investigation into the award of the now-canceled contract for Client Network Services Inc., or CNSI.

The issue arose during a hearing on CNSI's public records lawsuit, tied to the contract termination.

The Jindal administration canceled CNSI's contract in March after news surfaced about a federal investigation.

Jindal health secretary Bruce Greenstein, a former CNSI vice president, resigned a week later.

CNSI has sued the Jindal administration, alleging breach of contract and saying it did nothing wrong.
