Armstrong V. Exceptional Child Center Bad for Poor Seniors | JUSTICE IN AGING

If you believe that poor seniors should have at least the same access to justice through the courts as telecom companies, oil giants, automakers, and the tobacco industry, you should be very disappointed in today’s Supreme Court decision in Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center.

The decision today rejected Idaho health care providers’ attempt to enforce a provision of the Medicaid Act that requires states to ensure that doctors and other Medicaid-participating providers are adequately paid.
Unfortunately, today’s majority decision fits a disturbing pattern, in which the Court goes out of its way to deny access to justice for poor people, while allowing corporations similar rights.
