The article focuses on the lawsuits filed by California health care providers against the state over Medicaid program cuts. Three related cases were accepted by the U.S. Supreme Court and consolidated as Maxwell-Jolly v. Independent Living Center of Southern California. The right of providers to sue states over Medicaid access was opposed by President Barack Obama's administration in May 2011. Timothy Jost of the Washington and Lee University School of Law points out the reaction of Medicaid advocates and providers to the administration's action.
