Californians stuck in Medi-Cal backlog win lawsuit against state
Los Angeles Daily News

California residents whose Medi-Cal applications have been stuck in limbo for months have won a legal victory over the state after a superior court judge ruled that they were entitled to receive medical care until their eligibility was decided.

Alameda Court Judge Evilio M. Grillo said in his ruling filed Tuesday that those who sued the state were correct in claiming that the California Department of Health Care Service did not comply with its duty to make a decision on their eligibility within 45 days.
