On October 24, 2008, plaintiff non-emergency medical transportation service filed this claim in the Central District of California against the Director of the Department of Health Care Services of the State of California. The plaintiff sought to enjoin the Director from implementing state legislation reducing payments to medical service providers under California's Medi-Cal program by ten percent. Plaintiff argued that the ten percent rate reduction violated Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act (the Medicaid Act), 42 U.S.C. § 1396 et seq., and was therefore invalid under the Supremacy Clause. The plaintiff sought declaratory judgment under 42 U.S.C. § 2201.

The Defendant submitted an ex parte application for an order staying this action and two related cases. In an order filed on November 3, 2008, the Central District of California (Judge Christina A. Snyder) granted the order staying the instant action and two related cases. The Court stayed this case as well as California Association for Health Services at Home v. Shewry (CV 08-07045) and Independent Living et al v. Shewry (CV 08-3315) until further order of the Court.

On June 1, 2011, Judge Snyder issued an order removing this action from the active list of cases. The Judge ordered that counsel file a joint report detailing the status of the case every quarter until the action is reactivated or a stipulation for dismissal is filed. This is the last entry on the docket as of July 17, 2013.
