Judge blocks Sacramento closure of health clinics
San Francisco Chronicle

A judge has blocked Sacramento County’s plan to slash health care for the poor.

Two indigent residents and the Loaves & Fishes group sued the county and asked for a restraining order, saying Board of Supervisors ordered cuts would endanger the poor and lead to inadequate medical care.

Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner on Thursday issued a temporary restraining order and told the county to keep two clinics open.
