Most of you know that we’ve reached a final agreement with the Plaintiffs in the 32 year-old Arnold vs. Sarn lawsuit. We expect to have a dismissal hearing later this year- which will officially end the Arnold lawsuit. We got some other good news on a different behavioral health case last week.
Last Friday marked the end to the 22+ year JK v. Humble lawsuit. It was a class action lawsuit filed in 1991 by children eligible for or in need of behavioral health services under Medicaid. We were Defendants in the case along with AHCCCS. Last week the Plaintiffs asked that the case be dismissed… and the court followed suit by officially dismissing the case right away. You can learn more about the children’s system of behavioral health services on our website.
