Judge Orders Attorneys to Testify in Medicaid Contract Suit
On October 13, 2015, a judge ruled that Louisiana attorneys must testify on why they decided to cancel a $200 million Medicaid claims processing contract with Client Network Services Inc. ("CNSI"). The judge rejected the state's argument that they were protected by attorney-client privilege. CNSI filed the lawsuit over the cancelation of its contract with the Louisiana Health Department to implement and manage the state's Medicaid Management Information System.
