Ninth Circuit Denies Rehearing En Banc in M.R., Over Dissents
Last December, I blogged about the Ninth Circuit's decision ordering a preliminary injunction against certain Washington State Medicaid cuts in M.R. v. Dreyfus. Yesterday, over a dissent by Judge Bea, joined by eight other judges, the court denied rehearing en banc. The dissent's claim of a circuit conflict seems to me wildly overblown, but I wouldn't be shocked to see a cert. petition.
