Attorneys to testify about Medicaid cancellation decision
BATON ROUGE - A district court judge has ruled that state attorneys must testify about how the decision was reached to cancel a nearly $200 million Medicaid contract.
Judge Tim Kelley made the ruling Tuesday after Client Network Services Inc. sought to depose layers from the Jindal administration as well as state assistant attorneys general.
CNSI attorney Michael McKay says they want to know more about events and discussions that led up to the decision.
Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols previously testified she canceled the contract based on the advice of counsel. McKay said there was no other way to get additional information about the decision than to go to the lawyers.
McKay says Nichols' testimony opens to door for lawyers to be deposed.
