SCOTUS Cert. Grants of Interest: Three Cases on Private Causes of Action under the Supremacy Clause

The Supreme Court granted certiorari today in three cases: Maxwell-Jolly v. Independent Living Ctr. (09-958); Maxwell-Jolly v. California Pharmacists Ass’n (09-1158); and Maxwell-Jolly v. Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital(10-283). The Court consolidated the cases and granted certiorari only on the first question presented:

“Whether Medicaid providers may maintain a cause of action under the Supremacy Clause to enforce § 1396a(a)(30)(A) by asserting that the provision preempts a state law that reduces reimbursement rates.”
