Judge issues injunction blocking healthcare cuts; state to appeal
Los Angeles Times

A federal judge has agreed to block cuts in Medi-Cal payments, making her temporary ruling earlier this week permanent.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration said it will appeal the judge’s ruling, dated Tuesday, to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The court battle stems from the state’s effort to slash 10% from Medi-Cal reimbursements for doctors, dentists and other healthcare providers.
