Class Certification Order: Wilson v. Gordon (M.D. Tenn)

Executive Summary

Plaintiffs bring this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against the Defendants, who are State of Tennessee officials, for alleged violations of federal law and the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Plaintiffs’ claims arise from the State’s Medicaid program (TennCare) and the State’s responsibilities in administering that program. Plaintiffs ask the Court to certify a class consisting of “all individuals who have applied for TennCare on or after October 1, 2013, who have not received a final eligibility determination in a timely manner, and who have contacted the Tennessee Health Connection or its successor entity for assistance with that application.”
