Salazar v. The District of Columbia

Salazar v. The District of Columbia, 954 F. Supp. 278 (D.D.C. 1996): The firm represents a class of Medicaid recipients and applicants in a broad-based challenge to the District of Columbia's operation of the Medicaid program. The case alleged that the District of Columbia failed to deem newborns to mothers on Medicaid immediately eligible, failed to provide the opportunity to apply for Medicaid at clinics and hospitals, failed to decide Medicaid applications in 45 days, terminated people from Medicaid without adequate notice, and failed to notify families about and provide comprehensive child health services under the EPSDT (early and periodic, screening, diagnosis and treatment) program. After a trial at which the plaintiff class prevailed, the case settled while an appeal was pending and the firm continues to monitor the District's compliance with a comprehensive injunctive order.
