Douglas v. Independent Living Center of Southern California, Inc., 09-958

In consolidated cases challenging statutory Medicaid rate reductions by the state of California that were approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), judgments of the Ninth Circuit are vacated and the cases are remanded to permit the parties to argue before the Ninth Circuit in the first instance the question whether the respondents may maintain Supremacy Clause actions, where the CMS approval may require the respondents to seek review under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) rather than in a Supremacy Clause action against California.
